CASTLEGAR— CUPE 2262 and the City of Castlegar reached a tentative agreement late last night for a new three-year collective agreement. The agreement comes after the City’s municipal workers voted 95 percent in favour of job action last month.
“We want to extend our thanks to the City of Castlegar for their renewed and dedicated approach to bargain this week,” said CUPE 2262 President Dustin LePage. “When we work together to prioritize the needs of workers and citizens, our community wins: better public services for residents and businesses, better support for workers and their families, and a better Castlegar for everyone.”
The tentative agreement must now be ratified by both parties, and terms of the agreement will not be released until the ratification process has concluded.
CUPE Local 2262 represents approximately 45 workers who provide public community services for residents, visitors and businesses in the City of Castlegar.
