Two labour negotiations have recently reached important milestones. The Front commun has reached an agreement in principle with the Government of Québec regarding pay and working conditions. The group leaders agreed to a 17.4% increase in salaries over the next five years, as well as a fifth week of vacation after 15 years of seniority, phased retirement extended to seven years, and higher contributions to health insurance plans from employers. The agreement still needs to be ratified by union members. Capilano University and the Capilano Faculty Association (CFA) have ratified a collective agreement under the Province’s Shared Recovery Mandate that includes salary increases, enhanced compensation for non-regular employees, and enhanced benefits entitlement.
