APC Members Ratify New Agreement

November 16, 2019 at 9:55 AM

On November 15, Local 500 members at the Assiniboine Park Conservancy (APC) voted eighty-eight per cent to accept a new tentative agreement.

"I would like to commend our negotiating team for their hard work in reaching this new agreement,” said Local 500 President Gord Delbridge. “I would also like to thank our members for their support throughout the bargaining process and at the ratification vote.”

The new agreement provides for wage increases in each year plus signing bonuses in the first two years.  Members will also see an increase to boot allowance and improved language to health and safety and fairness in the workplace. 

Once both parties have officially signed the new agreement, it will be available on the Local 500 website.
