Central Okanagan schools reach contract deal with CUPE

CUPE reaches school deal

Members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 3523 have ratified a new collective bargaining agreement with Central Okanagan Public Schools.

The vote was held on Saturday, and 91 per cent of K-12 employees voted in favour of the new deal, which has been negotiated since May. The former collective bargaining agreement expired on June 30.

“Although the negotiations were challenging, the board of education recognizes the valuable contributions that our CUPE staff makes every day,” Central Okanagan board of education chair Moyra Baxter said in a press release. “Thanks to the many dedicated CUPE employees, our students become lifelong learners in safe, inspirational learning spaces.”
