Provincial Government Reaches Tentative Agreements with CUPE

The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has reached a tentative agreement with CUPE.

The tentative agreement will extend CUPE’s seven current collective agreements until March 31, 2022, and is subject to ratification by CUPE’s approximately 3,700 members.

The agreement will extend to all aspects of the current collective agreement, with the exception of certain specific amendments. Amendments include a salary increase and a reduction to long-term financial liabilities through changes to post-employment benefits for new employees.

CUPE will present the tentative agreement to their membership in the coming weeks.
