The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and CUPE 556, the union local representing approximately 72 employees, have agreed on a new, four year collective agreement.
The agreement, which will cover the period from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2018, provides for an eight percent increase over the four years. The increase will be applied in increments of two per cent in each of the four years. The first year’s increase will be in two one per cent increments - applied in January and in July of 2015. There were a number of other items covered in the negotiations, including some increases to health benefits and changes to leave provisions.
The collective agreement will now be revised, and when it’s ready, will be posted on the CVRD’s website at www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/HR.
The Comox Valley Regional District is a federation of three electoral areas and three municipalities providing sustainable services for residents and visitors to the area. The members of the regional district work collaboratively on services for the benefit of the diverse urban and rural areas of the Comox Valley.
