The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 4386, representing approximately 13 workers at the Civic Centre, have reached a tentative four-year deal that is subject to approval and ratification.
Negotiations took place in March, and a ratification vote by CUPE members, will take place in the next few weeks. No further details will be announced until both parties have an opportunity to review and ratify. If the agreement is reached, it will be sent to City Council for ratification.
The agreement provides for a four-year Collective Agreement, effective January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2021.
“We are thrilled to announce that through concerted negotiations and respectful dialogue, we have reached a tentative agreement that is mindful of the City’s financial position, and members of CUPE 4386,” said Mayor Jim Parsons. “Council deeply appreciates the dedication of the City of Corner Brook employees, and recognizes the significant efforts of all those involved.”
The City’s internal negotiation committee reached a tentative agreement with the Union without the need or use of external negotiators, or the use of Provincial Government appointed conciliators.
