Jail guard wages decided

An arbitrator tasked with deciding how much Commissionaires BC has to pay the 17 guards it employs at the Kelowna jail cells has handed down his decision.

According to Commissionaires’ Julie Powers, Mark Brown released his legally binding decision today. She says the arbitration award sets out how much Commissionaires has to pay its guards, and finalizes a collective agreement between the company and the union.

Powers would not say how much Brown ordered the company to pay its guards, only that Commissionaires is “very pleased” with the decision.

No one from CUPE, the union representing the guards, immediately responded to requests for comment.
