CUPE has reached tentative agreements with two home support agencies in Cape Breton.
CUPE National Representative Kathy MacLeod says, “Local 3986 represents 120 employees at New Waterford Home Support, and Local 4354 represents 35 employees at Victoria County Home Support.
“All of these home support workers are in one job classification – Continuing Care Assistants, or CCAs. Both groups will be holding ratification meetings in the next couple of weeks. No details will be released until the employees have had a chance to vote on the offers,” says MacLeod.
