CUPE 716 President Ian Hillman thanked everyone on the Local's bargaining committee for their dedication and efforts on behalf of members.

"This was a difficult round of bargaining," said Hillman. "Both parties worked hard and there are some issues we will continue to work on moving forward."

The tentative agreement also incorporates the provincial framework agreement approved by the K-12 Presidents Council in September. The current K-12 agreement expired on June 30, 2019. When ratified by CUPE locals and school district boards of trustees, the collective 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 in this month.
