CUPE 801 K-12 support workers on the Sunshine Coast reach tentative agreement

SUNSHINE COAST — CUPE 801, K-12 support workers at SD46, reached a tentative agreement last night following five bargaining sessions that began in March.

CUPE 801 President Janice Budgell said that the bargaining process went very well, and their bargaining committee is looking forward to presenting the tentative agreement to members tomorrow at the ratification meeting.

“Our entire bargaining committee was new and we all left feeling it was a positive experience,” said Budgell. “I’m happy with the tentative agreement we will be presenting.”

The provincial framework agreement (PFA) approved by the K-12 Presidents’ Council in September forms part of the tentative agreement. The current K-12 agreement expires on June 30, 2019. When ratified by CUPE locals and school districts, the provincial agreement will be in effect from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2022.

Further details of the tentative agreement will not be available until after ratification by all parties. Ratification is expected to be completed within a week.

CUPE 801 members provide a wide variety of services that support students including Education Assistants, Aboriginal Support Workers, Child Care Workers, Custodians, Trades, Clerical, Technology Technicians, and Administrative Support.

The Local represents approximately 230 K-12 support workers on the Sunshine Coast at Gibsons, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay, Madeira Park, Roberts Creek and Pender Harbour.
