CUPE 401 welcomed outside workers at the Corporation of the Town of Port McNeill, BC into the local last week. The workers at the public works yard voted to join CUPE 401 in a Labour Board representation vote.
“We’re really pleased to welcome these workers into CUPE 401,” said CUPE 401 President Blaine Gurrie. “It’s a great fit with the municipal workers we represent on Vancouver Island. We look forward to working with our newest members to achieve their first collective agreement.”
CUPE 401 represents a diverse group of approximately two thousand members from all over Vancouver Island. Their newest members from Port McNeill maintain roads and public parks.
