District of North Vancouver workers ratify new contract

NORTH VANCOUVER – CUPE 389 members who work for the District of North Vancouver have ratified a new three-year collective agreement. The agreement is a significant step forward in addressing both affordability challenges workers face and recruitment and retention issues.

“We believe that a well-supported workforce translates into superior services for our residents, and creates stability for local businesses,” said CUPE 389 President Yvette Mercier. “We’re confident this new agreement helps ease the financial pressures workers are facing while also ensuring residents continue to receive the quality public services they count on.”

The three-year deal provides wage increases of 3 percent in 2022, 4.5 percent in 2023 and 4 percent in 2024. It also includes a one-time, 4.5 percent inflationary support payment applied on 2022 wages.  

Other key improvements include full coverage of dental and extended health premiums and an increase to mental health paramedical coverage.

“CUPE 389 members are proud to provide services to residents, businesses, and visitors. We look forward to continuing to work with the District to cultivate a positive and progressive work environment, address recruitment and retention challenges, and elevate the quality of life for residents, businesses, and visitors alike,” adds Mercier.

CUPE Local 389 is a composite local that represents approximately 2,600 workers on the North Shore, including workers at the North Vancouver School District #44, District of North Vancouver, City of North Vancouver, District and City Libraries, North Vancouver Recreation Commission, Northlands Golf Course, Northshore Neighbourhood House, the Village of Lions Bay, and the North Vancouver Museum and Archives.
