Last night, CUPE workers reached a tentative agreement with the government. This round of provincial bargaining saw member representatives from each sector involved, including those in health care, school boards, public libraries, NL Housing, transition homes and group homes, and the Government House, who came together to negotiate for their counterparts across the province.

Ratification votes will take place within the coming weeks. Details of the agreement will be presented to CUPE members at meetings across the province. No further information will be released publicly until the tentative agreement has been presented to the membership.

“I congratulate the bargaining committee for all their hard work in achieving the best tentative agreement possible for our members,” said CUPE NL President Sherry Hillier. “When our members take charge of their own collective agreements, we make progress on the issues that matter to front-line workers.”
