CUPE support staff at five post-secondary institutions, including the College of the Rockies, have reached a tentative agreement with the Post-Secondary Employers’ Association (PSEA).
B.C. Government officials said the template table negotiations led to a tentative agreement that includes the main compensation components combined with individual agreements at the local level.
This will cover about 2,100 CUPE support staff employees, including some students.
This includes people who provide administration, facilities and technical support, food and beverage, library support and teaching assistance among other services.
Camosun College, College of New Caledonia, College of the Rockies, North Island College and Vancouver Island University were the five post-secondary schools to enter the tentative agreement.
