TO ALL MEMBERS OF CUPE LOCAL 59:
CUPE 59 contract for January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2018 has been approved
by City Council (Ratification Package – September 20, 2018). We are working with the
Employer to confirm when the new pay rates will take effect and when back
pay will be paid out.
Just a reminder that shift differential, boot allowance and the pilot
program for medical leave will be effective thirty (30) days following
ratification (September 20, 2018).
There is a pilot program for CUPE 59 employees to increase the discount from
25% to 50% for Individual and Family Leisure passes. CUPE 59 employees also
receive 25% on Bulk tickets.
This pilot program is now in effect and will expire on September 30, 2019
unless renewed by the parties.
The terms of who is eligible for the discount, are CUPE 59 employees have to
be working with the City for three (3) consecutive months. Employee status
must be active when applying for the subsidization. These are the original
terms of eligibility when the Leisure card discount was first put in place.
The contract will expire on December 31, 2018 and a bargaining survey will
be sent out to the membership in the near future.
