CUPE agreements ratified at five BC institutions


Support staff at five British Columbia postsecondary institutions have formally ratified a three-year agreement under the Government of British Columbia’s Shared Recovery Mandate. This ratification impacts approximately 2,100 Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) support staff at Camosun College, College of New Caledonia, College of the Rockies, North Island College, and Vancouver Island University. The agreement includes general wage increases, Indigenous cultural leave, and improved mental health supports. A statement from BC said that these negotiations were “focused on providing a fair and reasonable offer to public-sector workers that includes significant inflation protection, while ensuring that government has the resources to continue to invest in building a stronger province for everyone.”
