City Of Victoria Collective Agreement

The City of Victoria and its largest union have entered into a new four-year collective agreement. Local 50, a strong and democratic union, supports improving the quality of life of Victoria workers by giving a strong voice – a collective voice – in the workplace. In a statement, the city and the union say the wage increases are similar to the settlements in countries such as White Rock, Squamish, Vancouver and the Comox Valley Regional District. If you have questions about your rights in the workplace, the best person you can talk to is your steward or local leader. You will know the details of your agreement. Previously, the Greater Victoria Labour Relations Association, which negotiates on behalf of several public sector employers in the Capital Region, was negotiating for the city. The city decided last year to leave the association. All CUPE members work under the protection of a collective agreement called a collective agreement. Your local union negotiates the terms of the agreement. Elected local union leaders also work with the employer to resolve workplace issues. The union`s president, John Burrows, said the negotiations went smoothly and the new agreement was reached over four or five negotiating sessions.

“I can only hope that it will create a model for the rest of the region, all of whom are waiting to come to the negotiating table with GVLRA,” Burrows said. If you want a copy of your collective agreement on paper, talk to your trustee. If you don`t know who your administrator is or how to contact your office, contact the CUPE office near you. Mayor Lisa Helps called the four-year contract “unprecedented” and thanked both management and the union for their work in securing the agreement. “The ability to negotiate directly with our workers has led to a collective agreement in line with others across the province, new opportunities for students and apprentices, and an unprecedented four-year contract,” Mayor Lisa Helps said in a statement. The agreement with CUPE Local 50, which represents 850 municipal employees, is retroactive to January 1. It includes wage increases of 1.5 per cent in the first year and 2 per cent in the following three years. The contract is the first collective agreement negotiated independently between the city and CUPE in more than 40 years. The new collective agreement, the first independently negotiated between the two groups in 40 years, is a four-year contract, but runs until January 1 of this year, with the previous contract expiring on December 31, 2016.

CUPE 50 is the largest union in the city and represents 850 workers. There are also improvements in compensation and benefits specifically for auxiliaries and new provisions that will allow the city and the union to work with local educational and craft institutions to support co-operation internships and apprenticeships. You will receive an unsealed pension if you are retiring: CUPE 50 members are dedicated to protecting and improving the quality of life for all animals in British Columbia, for those who cannot speak. Old Age Insurance (AES) is a monthly payment that is available to most people aged 65 and over who respect Canada`s legal status and residency requirements. CUPE 50 members provide civilian support to the Victoria Police Service on behalf of the residents of Esquimalt and Victoria. The third Tuesday in January, March, May, September, October and November are held each year six (6) general meetings. The executive determines the time and place of these meetings.
