Jan. 30, 9 a.m.: UVic and CUPE 4163(3) ratify agreement

In mid December, negotiators for the University of Victoria and campus CUPE local 4163 reached a tentative agreement, subject to ratification. This agreement has since been ratified by both the union and the university.

CUPE local 4163 (component 3) represents sessional instructors and music performance instructors. Consistent with the provincial government’s 2012 Cooperative Gains mandate, the parties agreed to a 2 per cent across-the-board general wage increase retroactive to May 1, 2012 and a further 1.38 per cent across the board general wage increase effective May 1, 2013.

Four-year agreements were also reached with CUPE locals 951, 917 and 4163 (Component 1 & 2) earlier last fall. All of those agreements have since been ratified by both the unions and the university. The university also reached a tentative agreement for 2012 and 2013 with the campus local of the Professional Employees Association. That agreement has since been ratified by the PEA and by the university.
