Local 59 A and B – Yarmouth Association For Community Residential Options (YACRO) Tentative Agreement Ratified

The bargaining committee wishes to advise Local 59 members that the tentative agreement has been overwhelmingly ratified. 92.3 per cent of votes cast in the local were in the favour of accepting the tentative agreement. Local 59 now has a new collective agreement which runs from November 1st, 2015 to October 31, 2021.

The bargaining committee was very pleased that they were able to recommend the employer’s offer without the assistance of conciliation.

Thanks to Local 59 for supporting the bargaining committee throughout this process, as they worked hard on their behalf to achieve this collective agreement.

If there are any questions, please contact a member of the bargaining committee or the NSGEU by calling 1-877-556-7438 or 902-424-4063, or by e-mail at
