CUPE 3799 support workers reach tentative agreement at UNBC

PRINCE GEORGE — CUPE 3799 reached a tentative agreement with the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) on Thursday, June 13. The local began bargaining with UNBC in March.

“We had a great working relationship with the people at the table,” said CUPE 3799 President Caroline Sewell. “I want to recognize the hard work and dedication of the 3799 bargaining committee members, the Bargaining Information Group (BIG), and our National Servicing Representative.”

CUPE National staff representative Mitch Guitard said that a mutually respectful relationship was integral to reaching the settlement. “The employer worked really hard to reach the fair and equitable settlement that we are taking back to our members for ratification,” said Guitard.

Further details of the tentative agreement will not be available until after ratification by all parties, expected to be completed in June.  

CUPE 3799 represents approximately 420 support staff including: recruitment, registration, advising, admin support, IT and AV services, counselling and wellness, groundskeeping, facility maintenance, and much more.  CUPE members work collaboratively with Faculty and non-union staff throughout students’ university experience at UNBC.
