Collective Agreement PowerPoint Presentation

The Proposed Collective Agreement has been ratified by both Bargaining Committees. At this point it has gone to BCPSEA for final approval.

Please watch your E-mails for a final summary detailing when all of these changes come into effect, and which provisions are subject to backpay. In the meantime, please double check the specific Articles in your current collective agreement if you are unsure if you are covered by the changes. For example page 15 of this Power Point references Article 19 – Employee Benefits. Article 19 is found on page 38, and details who is covered for each of the mentioned allowances.

Please reach out if you have any questions about this or any other parts of the agreement. As soon as we have more information, it will be shared.

A Message from CUPE BC


Over the past year, CUPE BC has been campaigning for a system of public childcare in our existing K-12 system. We are now asking you to help us share our message with provincial decision-makers.

The provincial government has taken big steps to create more affordable childcare spaces for kids five and under. However, these recent investments don’t help those with school-aged children who continue to struggle with high cost, poor supply, and inconsistent quality of care for their kids.

B.C. must now create the thousands of school-age spaces communities need by supporting public before- and after-school programs in our existing public education system.

Public schools already have the space, staff, structure, and expertise to provide high-quality care for kids, who will have fewer transitions and more education-focused care under a universal public system.

Please help send this message by going back to the website and signing our petition to send a letter to the B.C. government.

Thank you for your support.

In solidarity,

Karen Ranalletta, President
