The 3800 members of CAW Local 111 and 900 members of CAW Local 2200 who work at Coast Mountain Bus Company in British Columbia's Lower Mainland recently ratified a one-year collective agreement.
"With the political uncertainty at the municipal level and the lack of financial support by the B.C. Liberals we moved ahead with a one-year agreement," said Susan Spratt, BC Area Director.
The collective agreement dealt with a number of issues, which will give these two locals a strong foundation entering into bargaining next year, she said.
Included in the agreement for the first time was the recognition of eight Women's Advocates and the full recognition for our transgender members including full benefit coverage and full recognition and respect in the workplace, she concluded.
