E-Comm, CUPE 873-02 agree to interest arbitration

Joint communication

VANCOUVER – E-Comm and CUPE Local 873, the Union that represents E-Comm’s 533 Bargaining Unit employees, have mutually agreed to proceed to interest arbitration to settle their Collective Agreement, which expired December 31, 2018.

The parties have been engaged in collective bargaining and mediation at the Labour Relations Board (LRB) since March 2019.  Due to the critical nature of the public safety services E-Comm and its employees provides, the LRB has also been involved in negotiating essential services levels to limit any impacts in the event of labour disruption.  Given the process of interest arbitration will result in a binding Collective Agreement any labour disruption at E-Comm has been avoided and essential services negotiations are concluded.

The parties have agreed on a process to select an arbitrator who will conduct an interest arbitration on an expedited basis.
