Bargaining Update #1
The Union and the Employer met on September 28th for the first time, to begin bargaining for the renewal of the Collective Agreement. Both sides exchanged bargaining proposals and have agreed to continue bargaining on October 7 and the 18th. We will be sending the members bargaining updates following our meetings in October.
In the meantime, we thank you for your support and remind you that it is important that you provide the union your personal email address, so that you can receive bargaining updates. If you haven’t already done so please send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org
In solidarity, Your bargaining committee
People depend on public services and your services depend on people to deliver them.
Surrey’s Municipal Employee Association has been representing Public Workers in the Fraser Valley since September 6 1947, when it was certified as Local No. 6.
On August 16, 1950, it became CUPE Local 402, which has grown to serve over 3000 part and full time members at present.
With a full time President and Office Coordinator working out of a permanent office in Cloverdale, Local 402 unites three sub-locals: White Rock (CUPE Local 402-01), Libraries (CUPE Local 402-02), and Cloverdale Rodeo (CUPE Local 402-03).
