September 2019 /PR/ – This week, the City of Vancouver and Local 1004 of the Union of Canadian Public Employees (CUPE), which represents outside city employees and employees of the Vancouver Parks Board, opened collective bargaining in the first of many such negotiations taking place this fall on BC`s south coast. The union identified affordability as a key topic in the negotiations.
“Our members love working for the city and serving the public, and they take great care of the different communities that make up the City of Vancouver,” said Andrew Ledger, President of CUPE 1004. “Unfortunately, it has become increasingly affordable for many of our members to live in the communities they serve.” “We are pleased to conclude this agreement,” said Andrew Ledger, President of CUPE 1004. “On behalf of all CUPE 1004 members, I would like to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of our bargaining committee.” Paul Baratta Mike Lupo Gary Parker Scott McIntosh (Alternate) Statistics Canada`s inflation figures for Vancouver in 2016, 2017 and 2018 show average increases of 2.4 per cent per year. BC Stats reports that inflation in Vancouver remained above 2 per cent in August and inflation in Vancouver has exceeded the Canadian average every month since at least June 2017, the date mentioned earlier in the report. The union refers to these figures as representative of the current crisis in the affordability of its members. SEIU Healthcare, OCHU-CUPE and Unifor support changes. “Whether it`s workers who travel long distances to work in a municipality where they can`t afford or employers who are losing a highly skilled and skilled workforce from more affordable communities, the current dynamic is not sustainable,” Ledger said. “We already know that the annual rent increases allowed for 2020 will be 2.6 per cent, which will further increase the impressive rental market in Vancouver.” The Union of Canadian Public Employees is Canada`s largest union, with more than 680,000 members across Canada and more than 97,000 in British Columbia. Union concerned that its members can no longer afford to live in the municipalities they serve appointments were held to elect a bargaining committee to prepare for upcoming negotiations.
