Posted in Chưa được phân loại

The union said the new agreement includes an overall wage increase of 3 percent per year over the four years of the agreement. According to the union, the contract also covers “accessibility and pay equity in the various occupations represented by SkyTrain employees.” “Both sides worked long and hard throughout the weekend, monday and Tuesday morning to reach this agreement,” Rebelo said of the new agreement, which was reached shortly before 5 .m, as a full closure of the Expo and Millennium lines was due to begin. Instead, normal service will resume shortly. The new four-year contract, which is retroactive to September 1, 2019, includes several improvements to improve affordability and pay equity in the various jobs of SkyTrain workers. The contract includes a general salary increase of 3 per cent per year. The ratification ended this afternoon after four days of electronic voting. “This ratification concludes a very difficult round of negotiations and reflects the strong mandate our negotiating committee has received from members,” said Tony Rebelo, President of CUPE 7000. “Without the commitment of the members of the Committee, whose determination remained firm in difficult circumstances, we would not have been able to reach this agreement.” The agreement comes after Metro Vancouver Bus, SeaBus and maintenance workers also ratified a collective agreement with their employer coastal mountain bus company to avoid a complete shutdown of the three-day system. “Without the commitment of the members of the Committee, whose determination remained firm in difficult circumstances, we would not have been able to reach this agreement.” The SkyTrain Workers` Union, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) 7000 and its employer, bc Rapid Transit Company (BCRTC), negotiated until the planned closure of the millenniums and exhibition lines. The parties reached an agreement shortly before 5 .m.

Now that the strike has been averted, the parties will work to ratify the agreement in the coming days. The agreement itself came at the beginning of the month, after a cycle of nightly negotiations that extended into the early hours of the morning, virtually preventing the total three-day closure of the exhibition lines and the millennium. A three-day strike by SkyTrain workers was averted thanks to a new interim agreement reached early in the morning after a marathon round of negotiations between CUPE 7000 and the BC Rapid Transit Company (SkyTrain). The parties had been conducting collective bargaining since the last contract expired in August of this year. Among the approximately 900 SkyTrain employees represented by CUPE 7000 are screening officers, maintenance, administration and technical staff. After the union representing SkyTrain`s 900 employees reached an agreement with the BC Rapid Transit Company (BCRTC) earlier this month, ratification of the new agreement was completed after four days of electronic voting. The December 10 agreement followed another strike vote by Metro Vancouver bus drivers and maintenance workers. The strike was also averted at the eleventh hour, when the bus workers` union and employers agreed on a contract in the early hours of 27 November. “It is now up to the members to ratify this agreement, which I highly recommend.” Details of the preliminary agreement will not be published until both sides have ratified it, but CUPE 7000 President Tony Rebelo said the 11-hour agreement is a long way to resolve many of the union`s concerns in the latest round of negotiations. “Without the help of mediator Grant McArthur, we would not have succeeded, so we thank him for his patience and wisdom during these discussions,” Rebelo said.
