(Mount Pearl, NL.) – The City of Mount Pearl has a new, four-year deal with its municipal inside and outside workers, members of CUPE Local 2099.

CUPE National Representative Bob Matthews says, “We’re very pleased that a solid majority of the local accepted the new contract in a ratification vote held last night.”

Matthews says highlights of the deal include:

  • A $2.10 an hour wage increase over the life of the contract (approximately 11% based on the average wage)
  • A ‘bridging’ provision for workers 60 and over who wish to retire

Mount Pearl Mayor Steve Kent also expressed his pleasure with the new deal. Mayor Kent says, “This is the result of a positive labour relations climate between the City and its unionized employees. It means we can continue to provide great service to the residents of Mount Pearl by our greatest asset, our employees.”

Local 2099 represents approximately 100 employees with the City of Mount Pearl.
