Parksville city workers net four-year deal

PARKSVILLE – CUPE Local 401 and the City of Parksville have reached a new tentative collective agreement. The four-year contract includes wage increases totaling eight per cent over four years beginning Jan. 1, 2014 and running until Dec. 31, 2017.  The wages will be implemented by a 1-per-cent hike every January and July 1st.

The new agreement includes language improvements to the dental plan as well as an increased ‘dirty work’ bonus and improvements to the banked sick time language to include caring for a child as well as a spouse.

The tentative deal must still be ratified by CUPE Local 401’s Parksville unit.  The 62 members of the unit comprise inside and outside workers in Parksville whose work includes staffing city hall, parks and public works. A ratification vote has been scheduled for next Tuesday, Sept. 23. Parksville City Council ratified the new contract last night.
