Union reaches tentative deal with SD 46

It took five bargaining sessions since March but support workers at School District No.46 (SD46) have reached a tentative agreement with the district.

The tentative agreement is expected to be ratified at a meeting on June 20. “Our entire bargaining committee was new and we all left feeling it was a positive experience,” said CUPE 801 president Janice Budgell in a release.

“I’m happy with the tentative agreement we will be presenting.”

The current K-12 agreement was set to expire at the end of the month. Once ratified, the new agreement will be in effect from July 1 to June 30, 2022.

Details about the agreement will be made available following ratification.

Education assistants, Aboriginal support workers, child care workers, custodians, trades, clerical workers, technology technicians, and administrative support workers are among the 230 support staff at the district affected by the agreement.
