Quesnel municipal workers’ contract ratified

QUESNEL—Members of CUPE 1050, Quesnel municipal workers, have a three-year contract that was ratified by Mayor and Council yesterday.

“We are pleased to be able to continue providing quality services to Quesnel residents,” said CUPE 1050 president Dan Weiman. “Despite difficult bargaining and the threat of a lockout, we reached a settlement with the help of a mediator.”

The three-year contract includes a bonus of $1,000 in lieu of retroactivity for 2010, 1.5 per cent in the second year, and 2 per cent in the third, as well as benefit improvements.

“Quesnel’s workers stood strong and supported their bargaining committee 100% and that commitment to deliver services for Quesnel residents will serve our community well,” says Weiman.

The City of Quesnel and CUPE 1050 reached the mediated agreement on Friday, September 3. The City was expected to ratify the agreement on September 7 but took an extra week to review the agreement. Quesnel’s Mayor and Council ratified the agreement yesterday.

CUPE 1050 represents 114 municipal workers in Quesnel who provide garbage collection, water and sewer services, and services at the arena, municipal works yard, and District Office.
