Three-Year Deal Ratified at United Way

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2010) - The 15 CUPE members working at the United Way of Greater Victoria have ratified a three-year collective agreement. The deal includes 2.5 per cent wage increases in each of the three years. Improvements were also made to long-term vacation, benefits and job evaluation.

CUPE 50 president John Burrows said the local is pleased with the results of this round of bargaining and that the agreement "shows that the union and the employer are headed in the right direction". 

"Relationships like the one we have with the United Way of Greater Victoria should be a model for other union employers. The level of respect shown at the bargaining table made this agreement possible."
