Richmond inside workers reach tentative agreement

RICHMOND—CUPE Local 718 and the City of Richmond have reached a new tentative agreement.

“We are pleased to have concluded negotiations and to have reached a fair and reasonable deal for our members,” said CUPE 718 president Robert Gilchrist. “However, this was a particularly difficult round of negotiations, one which has unfortunately strained the relationship between the two parties. This contract is the best we could achieve at this time and moving forward it will provide some security and protections for our members.”

The four-year deal includes wage increases of 1.25 percent, 1.75 percent, 1.75 percent and 2 percent in each year of the contract as well as some benefit improvements and adjustments to the grievance process.

CUPE 718 represents 900 inside workers at city hall, community centres, and swimming pools.
