Quilchena lockout ends after nearly 100 days

RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 10, 2013) - Nineteen CUPE 4964 employees who work at the Quilchena Golf and Country Club will be returning to work tomorrow after being locked out by their employer for nearly 100 days.

A tentative agreement was reached this morning (May 10), with the help of mediator Grant McArthur.

"CUPE 4964 members are relieved that this lockout has finally ended and that they are returning to work and will once again be maintaining the golf course," says CUPE National Representative Tom McKenna. "The most important thing for our members throughout negotiations was improved language around bargaining unit work and we were able to achieve that which is positive."
