Members of CUPE 2669 who work at the Saskatoon Public Library finally have a contract. On May 15, the Library Board ratified an agreement reached last week during mediation. CUPE members voted in favour of the deal on May 11.

The contract  covers a three-year period already worked – from April 1, 2010 to March 31, 2013.

“This is a first step,” says 2669 Vice-President and member of the bargaining team, Dolores Douglas.

    I am glad that you have a contract because it’s about time! I’m sorry to hear that you are having to jump right back into negotiations. May your bargaining team stay strong. Solidarity forever from a Cupe 1594 member.

    This may have become real now as we finally see this long awaited increase on our paycheques. Best of luck to the new bargaining team as they begin to prepare for the next round of negotiations. We’ve been without a contract since April 1, 2013.
