CUPE workers get contract at North Island College
COURTENAY—CUPE workers at North Island College have a new tentative collective agreement. The agreement, signed Dec. 5, 2012, is a four-year, no-concessions agreement with four 1 per cent wage hikes spread over the final two years.
The tentative contract is retroactive to 2010 and has no wage increase in the first two years in keeping with the provincial government’s Net Zero Mandate which prevented any wage increases for public sector workers in 2010 and 2011. The agreement also includes housekeeping and language improvements.
