City of Vancouver and CUPE Local 15 reach tentative agreement
The City of Vancouver has reached a tentative deal to renew its collective agreements with the union representing its clerical, technical, and administrative employees.
City hall and the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 15 kicked off negotiations in February, after the previous contract expired on December 31, 2011.
"I am pleased to announce that CUPE Local 15 and the City of Vancouver have reached a tentative settlement for renewed collective agreements – City, Park Board, Ray-Cam and Britannia," Paul Faoro, president of CUPE Local 15, said in a statement posted on the union's website on Sunday (October 28).
The deal will now go to city council and the union's members for ratification.
