District of Hope Bargaining Update

We have an agreement with the District of Hope, and ratification was successful among our membership and Council. The proposed agreement will see 10% GWI over a two year term. There are significant improvements to language, benefits coverage, sick and retirement gratuity as well as vacation allotments.

Village of Harrison Hot Springs Bargaining Update

Our bargaining dates in July resulted in us reaching an agreement!

The GWI increases are 3.75% for 2022, 4.0% for 2023, 4.25% for 2024.

We were able to achieve greater gratuity and vacation allotments, new and increased premiums, as well as improved benefit coverage.

The Committee did a great job of securing the best deal we could for the members, and we appreciate their participation in this process.

The three year term means that we will start pre-bargaining again in the new year.
