Vancouver and CUPE do 4-year deal

Vancouver city council and one of its unions have ratified a four-year deal.

Members of CUPE Local 15 will see wage increases of 1.25 per cent this year, 1.75 the next two years and two per cent in 2015.

The local represents 3,700 workers, including clerical, technical and administrative employees.

“The increases track below Vancouver’s rate of inflation projected over the term of the agreement,” the City said in a release.

The previous agreement had expired last Dec. 31. Negotiations began in February.
