CUPE town workers in Kamsack, members of Local 1881, reached a tentative settlement on November 9, after spending more than a month on the picket line.

The employer was insisting on a long list of concessions, including the right to fire probationary employees without cause. In a show of solidarity, CUPE 1881 members hit the picket line on October 6, after the employer refused to grandfather the two probationary employees.

The tentative agreement achieved on November 9 with the assistance of a provincial conciliator includes protection for the two probationary employees.

The two employees return to work on November 15. The employer is expected to ratify the agreement this week.
