The Gatineau white-collar workers, who recently joined CUPE, have ratified a tentative agreement reached by their bargaining committee and City representatives.
Having been without a labour contract for more than three years, the some 900 union members voted 97 per cent in favour of the agreement. Details will be known when the collective agreement is officially signed.
Following a union card membership blitz and the submission of an application for certification, the Gatineau White-Collar Workers’ Union, which had not been affiliated with any union federation in 30 years, overwhelmingly decided to join the ranks of CUPE.
“It’s a good agreement for all of Gatineau’s white-collar workers. We chose to go with CUPE, and we’re already seeing the results of that decision,” said Marc Demers, the president of CUPE 5400.
