Fredericton – Members of CUPE Local 1190, General Labour and Trades Part I, have accepted the tentative agreement reached last month with the provincial government.
‘’It has been a long process, but we are pleased with the new contract, which maintained the job security clause for our members,” explained Andy Hardy, President of CUPE Local 1190.
“The new collective agreement is a five-year contract and our members will receive a 15% increase over the life of the contract”.
CUPE 1190 has been without a contract since December 2003.
CUPE Local 1190 represents around 1,700 members who work in many departments such as Transportation, Tourism, Natural Resources, Supply and Services, and the Community Colleges.
