Winnipeg - Eighty-five CUPE members who work as custodians and bus drivers for the St. James-Assiniboia School Division voted yesterday to accept a new three-year contract that gives them a 7 per cent wage increase.

Our members are satisfied with the new contract, said Mike Skatfeld, President of CUPE Local 744. The wage increases and adjustments are in line with other city groups.

The agreement, which is retroactive to March 1 of this year, also includes shift differential adjustments for 4th and 5th certificate class Power Engineers.

The Canadian Union of Public Employees is Canadas largest union representing more than 485,000 women and men across the country. In Manitoba, CUPE represents 23,000 members in health care, education, municipalities, social services, utilities, libraries and emergency services.
