CUPE 716 Contract has now been Ratified

Human Resources will be forwarding your new Collective Agreement sometime in the new school year. Wage increase retroactive to July 1, 2019 will be reflected in support staff pay stubs in September.


The Bargaining Committee has reached a new Memorandum of Agreement with the School District #38 Richmond. Due to the complications with BCTF bargaining we must hold this meeting with very little notice.

Please note location: McMATH SECONDARY SCHOOL, 4251 Garry Street, Richmond BC at 5:00 pm.  Registration & sign-in will begin at 4:30 pm. 

Everyone who falls under the Collective Agreement is permitted to attend and vote – not only members.

Due to the short notice, please connect with your colleagues and let them know.

Goodbye, and thanks for everything!

Sharon Griffin-West, our administrative manager, has retired.  Sharon was the wonderful and kind voice who picked up the phone when you called the office. She made sure everything was done on time, that members who became sick were sent get-well cards, she paid our bills and followed up on grievances, scheduled meetings, maintained our files, and kept the Local functioning. She has been an immense help to us, a caring and loving person, and she will be missed.

We wish Sharon all the very best, and may she find all the hope and joy in retirement that she has well-earned. Sharon was a giant in every good way and we will miss her.
