Vancouver Art Galley and CUPE reach tentative agreement to end strike

The Vancouver Art Gallery has reached a tentative agreement with CUPE 15 at the bargaining table to resolve a labour dispute.

According to the union, the two sides had been bargaining for eight months, but had been stuck on a scheduling model that creates two-tiered working conditions as well as demanding wage increases pegged to inflation.

The Memorandum of Agreement, reached Sunday with the assistance of a mediator, is subject to ratification.

Unionized workers at the Gallery had rejected the employer’s final offer on Jan. 31 and served strike notice, but did not walk off the job until last Tuesday.
