Halifax – Members of NSGEU Local 72, support staff at Conseil Scolaire Acadien Provincial (CSAP), have voted overwhelmingly in favour of their tentative agreement.
“The bargaining committee and Chief Negotiator, Joël Michaud, worked diligently to reach a fair agreement with the employer for Local 72 members,” says Joan Jessome, President of the Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union. “This is how collective bargaining works.”
Highlights of the agreement include a three-year agreement beginning April 1, 2013 with wage increases of 2 per cent in year one, 2.5 per cent in year two and 3 per cent in year three.
There are 157 members in Local 72 who provide administrative, clerical, technical, library, and cafeteria services for CSAP.
The Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union represents over 30,000 women and men who provide quality public services Nova Scotians count on everyday.
