Winnipeg (21 Aug. 2015) — After two years at the bargaining table, the Community Support Bargaining Committee has reached a tentative agreement with the committee representing employers.

Relief for clients and families

Lengthy round of negotiations

“This has been a long road for members of the community support bargaining committee. We’re pleased we are now able to bring this offer to the members for a vote.”

Details of the agreement will not be shared until the 4800 members of the Component have had an opportunity to review them. The bargaining committee will meet shortly to schedule ratification votes for members across the province.
