The University of British Columbia (UBC) and the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 115 have reached a tentative agreement under government’s Sustainable Services Negotiating Mandate.
The mandate focuses on improving services for people and ensuring fair and affordable compensation.
The tentative agreement covers about 60 employees working at UBC as maintenance and operating engineers. Further details about the agreement will be available once the ratification process for both parties has been completed.
The Sustainable Services Negotiating Mandate supports government’s commitment to improve the services people count on, make life more affordable and invest in sustainable economic growth. The mandate is consistent with B.C.’s commitment to balanced budgets and sound fiscal management, and provides parties with the ability to negotiate conditional and modest funding to drive tangible service improvements for people in B.C.
Over 217,000 unionized public sector employees are covered by tentative or ratified agreements reached under B.C.’s Sustainable Services Negotiating Mandate.
