The City of Prince Albert and the city union workers have reached a tentative agreement after a couple of days of negotiations.
CUPE 882 made the announcement late Tuesday, saying the agreement includes coverage for vision care as well as employee and family assistance program coverage being expanded for non-permanent employees.
“The wage offer from the employer remains the same, with a Memorandum of Understanding on market supplements to adjust wages for hard to recruit classifications. In addition, the pay bands will be adjusted to bring the lowest paid workers above minimum wage,” the union’s release release.
