The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), Local 3799 reached a tentative agreement with the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) in Prince George, B.C., on June 13.

“We had a great working relationship with the people at the table,” said Caroline Sewell, CUPE 3799 president.

“The employer worked really hard to reach the fair and equitable settlement that we are taking back to our members for ratification,” said Mitch Guitard, CUPE national staff representative.

Further details of the tentative agreement will not be available until after ratification by all parties, expected to be completed in June, said the union. 

CUPE 3799 represents about 420 support staff including: recruitment, registration, advising, admin support, IT and AV services, counselling and wellness, grounds keeping and facility maintenance.
