Your Bargaining Committee is pleased to announce we reached a tentative deal with your employer on October 25, 2019.
This is a 4 year agreement with 3% wage increase in each year, retroactive to August of 2018. We also achieved larger wage increases for minimum-wage workers in the Grass Roots Café, including a larger gap between the line and supervisory staff. Other monetary gains included reimbursement for part-time employees for courses and included casuals in employer-paid closure over Christmas vacation. We negotiated expedited arbitration language and streamlined processes for sick leave and travel expenses.
A ratification meeting is scheduled as follows:
November 15, 2019
3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Birch 250 KPU Surrey
Voting will take place at the meeting, but ballots will also be available from your Bargaining Committee members between November 13th and November 20th. The full ratification package will be available via pdf document prior to November 13th.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any member of your Bargaining Committee. We thank you for your patience during this process, and look forward to discussing the tentative deal with you.
