Village of Nakusp CUPE members rejected an earlier deal in November, prompting a new round of negotiations.

Village, CUPE staff hammer out agreement

Union president: “not everyone is happy”

The Village of Nakusp has reached a new tentative contract with its unionized workers.

The deal was struck during a morning of contract talks last week, says local union president Andy Cruden.

“I’m happy to see an end to a long 28 months of negotiations,” said Cruden. “Not everybody is happy on either side, but we have come to an agreement.”

Cruden wouldn’t say what was in the memorandum of agreement. Workers will vote on the deal on Dec. 11.

Village councillors will also have to ratify the new deal at their next council meeting.

“I think it’s fair for both sides,” said Mayor Karen Hamling.

The 23 CUPE workers for the village have been without an agreement since July 2015, when their last three-year contract expired. The union represents parks, operations, and clerical staff in the village.
