Parksville inks 5-year pact with CUPE

Public employees get two per cent raise in each of next four years

The City of Parksville has completed a five-year collective agreement with the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 401 that will provide union employees with a two per cent general pay increase for the next four years.

The increase will rise to 2.25 per cent effective Jan. 1, 2022, in the final year of the agreement, the city stated in a news release issued Thursday, April 19, 2018.

The agreement covers 61 public employees, said Keeva Kehler, director of administrative services for the city.

Kehler said the two per cent increase for 2018 has been factored into the city’s budget and 2018-22 five-year financial plan, which was given three readings at council’s recent April 16 meeting.
