New Contract for Powell River Library Workers

Workers at Powell River Public Library in British Columbia have a new five-year contract, retroactive to 2013. The contract includes wage increases and improved benefits. The library workers are represented by CUPE Local 798.

The union president stated:
It makes such a difference when both parties negotiate maturely and [respectfully]. In this case, we both had priorities and issues that we wanted to negotiate and that we did negotiate. When we work together like this the results benefit everybody, especially the community.
