QUALICUM BEACH – Locked out municipal workers in Qualicum Beach have voted to accept a mediator’s recommendations for a new contract. The vote was held this afternoon by members of CUPE Local 401.
The BC Labour Relations Board mediator’s recommendations were made after a meeting with the town and its union employees this week. The Qualicum Beach Town Council says it plans to discuss the recommendations at a special in-camera meeting early next week.
The 65 workers were locked out of their jobs a month ago and have been without a contract since 2013.
