NEWS RELEASE Town of Osoyoos and CUPE Local 608 Reach Agreement On Renewed Collective Agreement

For Immediate Release
December 7, 2020
Osoyoos, BC

The Town of Osoyoos and CUPE Local 608 (Osoyoos Unit) are pleased to announce that they have reached agreement on terms of renewed collective agreement for a four-year term (January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2024).
The agreement comes after several bargaining meetings that commenced in August of 2020. The global pandemic delayed the start of bargaining and the parties reached an agreement to recommend to their respective principals on November 27, 2020. Both the Town of Osoyoos and CUPE Local 608 (Osoyoos Unit) have now ratified the agreement.
The renewed agreement includes general wage increases in each year of 2%, some language improvements, clarifies timelines respecting some items, and provides improvements to certain benefit provisions (life insurance, AD&D, extended health, personal protective clothing allowance). The agreement fits well with the Town’s budget for labour and represents a fair and sustainable deal for all parties.
“This agreement is positive for everyone and negotiations were respectful and productive. I am pleased that we were able to reach an agreement that ensures the continued provision of municipal services and a positive work environment between the Town and its CUPE employees” said CAO Allan Chabot.
Osoyoos Unit Chair Frank Zandvliet said “I would like to thank our CUPE bargaining team members for their hard work in support of reaching an agreement. We are proud of our members and the services they provide to our community.”
