CUPE 2262 ratifies Central Kootenay deal

NELSON – CUPE Local 2262 has ratified a new three-year agreement with the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK).  The no-concessions deal includes wage increases of 1.5%, 1.4% and 1.5% respectively. Included in the collective agreement are improvements to employee definition language and increases to clothing and optical allowances.

The new agreement expires on Feb. 28, 2015 and must still be ratified by the Regional District. The sub local of CUPE 2262 covers about 40 District employers at arenas, the aquatic centre and landfills. The union members include lifeguards, landfill attendants, maintenance, custodial and customer service representatives.

CUPE 2262 President Leford Lafayette said the bargaining was respectful and productive. The two sides met only three times to reach the agreement.  “This follows on the heels of the agreement we reached in the summer with the Castlegar Golf Course – a tough round of bargaining that still resulted in a negotiated, no-concessions collective agreement,” said Lafayette.

CUPE 2262 is a composite union local that represents the RDCK Nelson and district Community Complex, RDCK Castlegar Rec and Landfill, Castlegar Golf Club, Castlegar Library, City of Castlegar and RCMP.
