Support workers ratify contracts

While teachers have voted 73 per cent to withdraw extracurricular activities as part of their escalating job action, Langley School District support staff have ratified new, two year contracts that fall within the provincial government’s net zero mandate.

In April, the Langley Board of Education voted in favour of ratifying the memorandum of agreements for CUPE locals 1260 and 1851, with many trustees commending CUPE and district staff for coming together to make this happen.

Teachers are not even close to coming to any agreement in their contract talks which also fall into the net zero mandate.

Langley’s support staff joined many other districts in ratifying a deal.

Fifty-two out of 69 agreements in BC’s school districts have been ratified, covering 26,600 employees.
