BURNABY – CUPE Local 3338 representing support staff at Simon Fraser University reached a tentative agreement late on Friday night, ending four long, consecutive days of bargaining.
"I'd like to thank the bargaining committee for their hard work and persistence in reaching this deal," said CUPE 3338 President Fiona Brady Lenfesty. The groups met to bargain a dozen times in 2015.
The tentative agreement was negotiated within the tight restrictions of the Public Sector Employer's Council (PSEC) mandate. Details of the settlement will not be released pending ratification by CUPE 3338 members and the SFU Board of Governors.
CUPE 3338 represents more than 900 life guards, clerical, support, library and technical staff at Simon Fraser University's three campuses in Burnaby, Vancouver and Surrey.
