"This agreement is superior to any of the other settlements we were able to achieve since 2000," said CUPE 409 President Marcel Marsolais. "Our bargaining committee is recommending that our members vote to ratify the agreement." 

The provincial framework agreement (PFA) approved by the K-12 Presidents Council in September forms part of the tentative agreement. The current K-12 agreement expires on June 30, 2019. When ratified by CUPE locals and school districts, the provincial agreement will be in effect from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2022.

Further details of the tentative agreement will not be available until after ratification by all parties. Ratification is expected to be completed by the end of June.

CUPE 409 represents approximately 375 K-12 education workers in the New Westminster School District.
