Local 114 First Canada

Members of Unifor Local 114, representing transit workers Cowichan Valley Regional District working for First Canada, have ratified a new collective agreement, averting a strike or lockout.

The new deal is for four years and will see an additional 20 cents per hour in each year of the deal, retroactive to April 1, 2015.

The deal was patterned on a BC Transit deal negotiated last summer, got two-tiering concessions off the table – as well as the notion of integrating the conventional bus system with the community shuttle system, which would have meant a significant cut in take home pay for members.
