NORTH VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 24, 2013) - CUPE 389 employees at the North Shore Winter Club will be returning to work after being locked out by their employer for more than seven months.

A tentative agreement was reached yesterday, December 23, with the assistance of a mediator and CUPE 389 members voted 91 percent in favour of ratifying the agreement this morning (December 24).

"We are pleased to have reached a no concession deal just in time for the holidays. CUPE members are eager to get back to work so they can return to providing services at the club," says CUPE National Representative John Strohmaier.

The new deal expires June 30, 2015 and CUPE 389 members will receive a five percent wage increase over the next 18 months.
