CUPE 4156 Facility Services Reach Tentative Agreement
On March 22,
the District School Board of Niagara and CUPE Local 4156 Facility Services
arrived at a tentative local agreement.
Details will be
available following ratification which is expected to take place on or before
May 1, 2016.
The local contract follows the provincial agreement between
the Ontario Government, the Ontario Public School Boards Association and the
Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which was reached in the fall of
2015. Under the terms of provincial legislation, the government negotiates big
ticket items such as salary, while individual school boards are responsible for
reaching agreements with local bargaining units.
