Collingwood Neighbourhood House workers reach tentative agreement

VANCOUVER—Community Social Services workers, members of CUPE Local 1936, have reached a tentative agreement with Collingwood Neighbourhood House (CNH).

The parties held five face-to-face bargaining sessions beginning on December 18. At the conclusion of the final session on March 26, the employer and union signed off on a five-year agreement that will include an 8.5-per-cent increase over the next four years, with an extra 3.3 per cent over the life of the agreement for casual workers (a 2.9-per-cent wage increase plus 0.4 per cent in lieu of Family Day), plus 1 per cent of last year’s wages in lieu of retro pay.
