Capilano University and MoveUP have reached a tentative agreement under government’s Sustainable Services Negotiating Mandate, which focuses on improving services for people and ensuring fair and affordable compensation.
The tentative agreement covers approximately 400 people working at Capilano University in a variety of support-staff positions including information technology, student services, finance and facilities.
Further details about the agreement will be available once the ratification process for the boards of the university, the Post-Secondary Employers’ Association and MoveUP members is 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.
Approximately 230,000 public-sector employees are covered by tentative or ratified agreements reached under B.C.’s Sustainable Services Negotiating Mandate.
