Niagara Region approves new collective agreement with CUPE 1287
At its meeting held earlier today, Niagara Region Council approved a new collective agreement with members of Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 1287. Previously, CUPE 1287 members voted to ratify the agreement, which the parties reached on Sept. 22, 2022.
“On behalf of Regional Council, I am pleased to see that we were able to come to an agreement that is mutually beneficial and fair to both the talented and dedicated members of CUPE 1287 and to the taxpayers in Niagara,” says Regional Chair Jim Bradley. “With this ratified agreement, residents can rest assured that they will continue to receive high quality public services without risk of interruption.”
Chair Bradley wishes to express Council’s appreciation to the negotiating teams from both the corporation and CUPE 1287 who worked diligently to finalize a fair deal for all parties.
CUPE 1287 represents nearly 1,000 Regional employees that provide services in the areas of planning, social assistance, finance, court services, childcare, housing services, transportation operations, fleet maintenance, facilities maintenance, information technology services, water and wastewater operations, landfill operations and administrative services.
