ST. JOHN'S, N.L. —

The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) have reached a tentative agreement that will extend CUPE’s seven current collective agreements until March 31, 2022.

The agreement is subject to ratification by CUPE’s approximately 3,700 members from across the province.

A news release states the agreement will extend to all aspects of the current collective agreement, with the exception of certain specific amendments. Amendments include a salary increase and a reduction to long-term financial liabilities through changes to post-employment benefits for new employees.

CUPE will present the tentative agreement to its membership in the coming weeks.
