Sudbury Employees of the Sudbury and District Health Unit, members of Local 1916 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), ratified a new collective agreement yesterday, averting a strike that was set to start today if a deal had not been reached.

We are pleased that we were able to achieve wage parity with an average salary increase of 12.7% for our members, says Dianne Denault, president of CUPE Local 1916. Now our members will earn wages on par with other Health Unit employees in the North.

We would like to thank the residents of the communities we serve for their support, adds Denault. We couldnt have reached a settlement without you.
