The City of Mount Pearl and two locals of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) have a new collective agreement.

More than 200 CUPE members voted yesterday to accept the tentative agreement reached on June 28, 2018. The new four-year collective agreement includes a four percent wage increase over four years, the opportunity for enhanced service through flexibility in language, and, most notably, a job evaluation program linked to compensation that is the first of its kind among Newfoundland and Labrador municipalities.

Council is set to vote on the collective agreement on July 24.
