NORTH VANCOUVER, Aug. 16 /CNW/ - CUPE 389 negotiators in North Vancouver
are proud to announce that they have now reached tentative agreements with two
more employers - the City of North Vancouver and the North Vancouver City
Library. This brings the total number of civic agreements reached with CUPE to
twelve in recent weeks.
It is unknown when the City and Board will ratify the agreements, but the
union will be recommending the deal to their members for ratification early
"We have reached two more tentative agreements that are fair and fall
within the regional settlement pattern," says Cindy McQueen, CUPE 389
president. "Furthermore, key local issues that are important to North
Vancouver city and library workers and beneficial to the employer and
community have been addressed at the bargaining table."
CUPE 389 will not be releasing details of the agreements until both
parties have ratified, but McQueen is willing to say the deals "reflect
agreements reached throughout the region."
City workers in White Rock, represented by CUPE 402-1, ratified a similar
agreement this afternoon.
CUPE 389 represents 300 city workers and 50 library workers in the City
of North Vancouver.
