Town Of Osoyoos Collective Agreement

The City of Osoyoos and CUPE Local 608 (Osoyoos Unit) are pleased to announce that they have agreed on the terms of a renewed collective agreement for a period of four years (January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2024). The agreement comes after several negotiating meetings that began in August 2020. The global pandemic delayed the start of negotiations and the parties agreed to send a recommendation to their respective sponsors on November 27, 2020. The city of Osoyoos and CUPE Local 608 (Osoyoos Unit) have ratified the agreement. The renewed agreement provides for general wage increases of 2% each year, some language improvements, clarifying timelines for certain points and making improvements to certain benefits provisions (life insurance, AD-D, extended health care, personal protection supplement). This agreement fits perfectly into the city`s working budget and is a fair and lasting agreement for all parties. “This agreement is positive for all and the negotiations have been respectful and productive. I am pleased that we have been able to reach an agreement that ensures the continued provision of municipal services and a positive work environment between the city and its CUPE employees,” said OAC Allan Chabot. Frank Zandvliet, President of Osoyoos, said: “I would like to thank our members of the CUPE negotiating team for their hard work in supporting an agreement. We are proud of our members and the services they provide to our community. Allan Chabot Chief Administrative Officer (T) 250.495.6515 (E) presentation materials and feedback forms will also be available on the city`s website from December 10 and in print at the city`s information booths at the library and town hall.

Feedback will be collected until December 17. Frank Zandvliet CUPE LOCAL 608 President of Unit (E) Section 98 of the Community Charter sets out the requirements for municipalities to submit an annual report each year by June 30. The report should contain: “One of the Council`s priorities is the modernization of the law, which determines the share of infrastructure costs with new developments,” said Mayor Vassilaki. With the completion of this plan, we can begin with the significant update of development costs, scheduled for next year. “Based on the vision of a comprehensive approach to transportation, in conjunction with the data collected and feedback, we have developed a draft plan to guide our future transportation projects,” said Ian Chapman, the city`s engineer. “Before it`s over, we`re going to register with the community and confirm that the plan is moving in the right direction.” Launched last summer, the plan identifies safety issues and traffic jams on city streets and opportunities to improve walking, cycling and transit links. The plan`s mission is to bring the city closer to its vision of a comprehensive transportation concept, defined in the official 2019 community plan. In the coming weeks, the city will review the plan with groups with specific knowledge of the city`s transportation systems and its users, such as emergency and transit service providers, education and health services, recreation and environmental groups, and economic and economic development organizations. Interested members of the community are also invited to share their views. If you only want to print part of the survey plan, you must first save the file in your directory and then open the registered copy with Adobe Acrobat.
