Bargaining resumes for Community Social Services

Bargaining resumes for Community Social Services

BURNABY— Members of the community social services bargaining committee returned to the bargaining table earlier this week in an attempt to reach a new collective agreement. Despite being subject to the forced mandate of the bargaining sub-committee, CUPE remains actively involved in representing its members’ rights at the table.

The bargaining sub-committee resumed negotiations on Monday (March 21) with talks scheduled until Friday (March 25). An update will be provided at that time. Key demands include job security, improved language and work place rights.

CUPE bargaining representatives say that these talks give government and employers a critical opportunity to negotiate an agreement that provides members with greater stability and improved working conditions.

The Community Social Services Bargaining Association, which includes CUPE and eight other unions representing workers in the sector, will continue with preparations for potential job action in the event it is not possible to achieve a tentative settlement.

CSSBA represents 15,000 workers in 220 agencies, including 2,500 CUPE members, across the province.
