MONCTON – CUPE 1418 members (rehabilitation and therapy and recreation and cultural program officer group), have ratified the tentative agreement reached last month with the New Brunswick provincial government.
“This has been a lengthy negotiation process for the members”, explained Anne Hogan, president of CUPE 1418.
“We have been without a collective agreement since August 2004. A two-year negotiation process is not acceptable and in the future we hope the government would expedite the process”, concluded Hogan.
The five-year collective agreement provides for a 15 per cent wage increase.
