The Greater Victoria Board of Education and CUPE Local 947 ratified a collective agreement that runs from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2019.

The agreement incorporates the provincial framework agreed to in the spring of 2014 between BCPSEA and CUPE BC that included wage increases and the Employee Stability Grant covering days lost during the teachers’ job action.

President of CUPE 947 Brad Hall said he appreciates “the board’s support of more full-time work for CUPE members working with students … [and] the respectful dialogue across the table during bargaining.”
