Thirty mental health and social service workers at North of Superior Programs have ratified a tentative agreement reached by CUPE 3253’s negotiating team in a marathon negotiation session on February 24th, ending their eight-month strike.

“After eight months on the picket line, our members have won a 6.3% wage increase over four years, a 3,000.00 signing bonus and improvements to vacation and mileage provisions,” said Diane Atkinson, CUPE 3253 spokesperson. “It’s far better than where we left off when we began our strike June 23rd.” The Local would like to thank CUPE locals and members across Canada who supported their strike, and acknowledge the tremendous support received from staff and officers of CUPE throughout their job action.

The workers return to work on Friday, March 4th.
