Fourth CUPE Local rejects tentative agreement

VANCOUVER - CUPE 3403-01 members voted on Thursday to reject the tentative Community Health agreement, the final of four locals to vote against the deal. Members were not impressed with the deal and were particularly concerned about the losses of LTD benefits, voting 82 per cent against ratifying the agreement.

CUPE 3403-01 represents workers at the Canadian Mental Health Association branch in Port Alberni, an organization that promotes mental health and supports the recovery of people experiencing mental illness.
