SCRD/union reach tentative agreement

The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) and Unifor Local 466 negotiating committees are pleased to announce that a tentative agreement has been reached between the SCRD and Unifor Local 466.
The agreement was reached following two days of renewed negotiations between the parties and was signed on Feb. 24.
“I want to express my sincere thanks to all participants who were involved in these negotiations and especially to Unifor Local 466 for their collaboration through this entire process,” says Gerry Parker, chief spokesperson for the SCRD. “Due to COVID-19, these negotiations took place virtually, and we are appreciative of the willingness of the representatives to ensure this agreement could be moved forward at this
time.”
The previous collective agreement between the SCRD and Unifor Local 466 expired at the end of 2019, and negotiations have been continuing since then.
“I am very pleased to have reached an agreement with the SCRD that I can confidently recommend to our members,” says Bryce Viitanen, chief spokesperson for Local 466. “Working together, we were able to overcome some significant challenges, and I want to thank everyone at the ‘virtual’ table for their hard work to make this agreement possible.”
The agreement will be jointly recommended and brought forward for ratification by the respective parties in the coming weeks.
