Ongoing bargaining reaches critical stage

VANCOUVER—Provincial-level bargaining for CUPE education members made progress this week. Presidents’ Council and the employer will continue to meet over the weekend in order to avert a strike. At this time members remain on strike alert.

“There has been give and take for the first time at the table,” said Colin Pawson, Chair of the CUPE BC K-12 Presidents’ Council. “Discussions are ongoing, but the negotiations have reached a critical stage.”

Your CUPE BC K-12 Presidents’ Council Bargaining Sub-committee consists of Colin Pawson (Chair, Metro Vancouver), Wendy Johnson (Thompson-Okanagan), June Kaiser (Metro Vancouver), Leslie Franklin (Fraser Valley), Cherryl MacLeod (Kootenays), Daphne Ross (North Island), Jan Peever (South Island) and Paula Cox (Northern Area). The Committee is supported by K-12 Coordinator and Chief Spokesperson Bill Pegler, and CUPE representatives Ian Boyko, John Malcolmson, Kevin McConnachie, Tina Meadows, Kevin Rose, and Carol Wood.

The Canadian Union of Public Employees represents more than 27,000 education BC workers in the K-12 system.
