(Halifax) – School crossing guards in the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) have their first union contract.
The 140 members of CUPE Local 4814 have won pay raises, a clothing allowance and other improvements to their working conditions.
CUPE National Representative Jacquie Bramwell says, “We believe this contract is a great first step to giving these workers, who provide an extremely important service to our community, the same respect as other municipal employees.”
“They worked incredibly hard, first to be able to join the union, and now to get their very first contract. They are to be commended,” says Bramwell.
The term of the contract is from September, 2007 to June, 2009.
