Moose Jaw, CUPE ratify new collective agreement

Deal includes wage increases, bereavement leave improvements: Union

After almost two years at the bargaining table, the City of Moose Jaw, Sask, and Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 9 ratified a new collective agreement May 25.

“It was a long and difficult round of bargaining, and we are hopeful that the relationship between the employer and employees will go more smoothly moving forward,” said Stacey Landin, president of CUPE Local 9.

The four-year collective agreement expires on Dec. 31, 2018, and includes wage increases of two per cent, two per cent, 1.75 per cent and 1.75 per cent respectively. The deal also sees improvements to language around bereavement leave, said the union.
