Win of the Week! December 16-22

We have a very exciting win to share this week: members at Chinook School Division have ratified a new agreement! It is a 3 year agreement that includes a signing bonus of $675 to all full-time calendar and academic year employees and is prorated for part-time employees. All members will receive this signing bonus before Christmas. The members also achieved an agreement with wage increases each year: 1% in 2018, 2% in 2019, and 1% in 2020. We are so proud of the members for achieving this collective agreement and standing strong together – it is a real challenge when government continues to push for rollbacks but as demonstrated, our solidarity wins!
