TERRACE – An agreement has been reached between Northwest Community College (NWCC) and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) related to a Labour Relations Board application made by CUPE.
The agreement was reached in a settlement meeting chaired by mediator Ken Saunders, March 27 and 28.
"We are pleased that we were able to resolve this issue through this informal process," said NWCC President Dr. Denise Henning. "A formal hearing would have been costly for both the Union and the College.
"We are pleased with the outcome of this process and look forward to moving forward with a plan immediately that ensures that the consultative process set out in the CUPE Collective Agreement is followed.
"Our priority is to ensure that NWCC employees, who belong to CUPE and may be affected by layoffs, have the opportunity to exercise their rights."
