CUPE and University of Victoria reach tentative agreements to conclude collective bargaining

CUPE Locals 917 and 951 have reached tentative agreements with the University of Victoria to conclude collective bargaining for university support workers. The agreements were reached through a collaborative effort to conclude negotiations in light of the current public health crisis. With bargaining completed, both parties can continue to focus their efforts on supporting faculty, staff and students in the weeks to come.

Collective bargaining at UVic, as well as across the broader BC public sector, was conducted under the 2019­-2022 Sustainable Services Negotiating Mandate.

Details of the agreements will be released following ratification by both parties.
