After weeks of difficult bargaining, the government and negotiators for 5,500 CUPE health care support workers in Manitoba have reached a tentative settlement.

Members will meet September 20 to learn the full details of the offer with ratification votes slated the same day.

While details have not been released, the proposed contract, which covers a 26-month period, includes an improved wage package and other gains.

The deal averts a strike that had been planned for September 19. The members at 13 locals in Winnipeg and one local in Gimli had rejected an earlier offer, demanding better wages and a shorter contract period.
