School support staff sign deals with B.C.

By The Canadian Press

VANCOUVER - More than 3,000 support staff workers in six school districts have signed agreements with British Columbia.

The agreements between local union groups and their respective districts will last from July 1 until June 30, 2019 and give a 5.5 per cent wage increase over five years.

CUPE represents more than 27,000 education-support workers in 59 locals and 53 school districts province-wide.

Its members work as education assistants, secretaries, custodians, IT workers, trades and maintenance workers and bus drivers.
