Bargaining Update #2 – District of North Vancouver Bargaining

CUPE 389 Bargaining Update May 12, 2023

We wanted to provide a brief update on bargaining for District of North Vancouver members.

We are pleased to report that in our first meetings we have been able to agree to several non-monetary and fairly straightforward bargaining proposals. We feel that this is a positive start, but there are still several significant items to be discussed.

We continue to pursue collective agreement terms to enshrine job security and improve recruitment and retention and have communicated to the employer that this is a priority for the union.

Our focus, has been and will continue to be, ensuring we have a productive and progressive round of bargaining and working with the District to make sure CUPE 389 members have the supports they need at work to provide quality public services to residents, visitors and businesses in the District of North Vancouver.

We will be meeting again to bargain on May 24, and we expect to have another update following that.

To keep updated on this round of negotiations please make sure CUPE Local 389 has your personal email. Please visit our website here to update your contact info if needed.

If you have any questions, please ensure you attend our membership meetings. We hold them on ZOOM for easy access and you can find all the dates on our website.
