Re: Bargaining Bulletin #35 – IUOE 882 Ratification of Agreement


We are pleased to share that the five-year collective agreement between the university and IUOE 882 (previously mentioned in Bargaining Bulletin #34) has been ratified by the union’s members.

This agreement will now proceed through the University’s ratification process.  It has been approved by the Public Sector Employer’s Council (PSEC), and must now proceed for approval to the University Public Sector Employers Association (UPSEA) and then to the UBC Board of Governors.  Once they have approved the agreement, it will be fully in effect.  The agreement falls within the Provincial Government’s Economic Stability Mandate and is for the period April 1, 2014, through March 31, 2019.

IUOE 882 represents 63 operating engineers and mechanical maintenance trades in Building Operations, Energy & Water Services, and Student Housing & Hospitality Services at the Vancouver campus.
