BC Transit has reached a tentative agreement with members of Unifor Local 333 under the Province’s Shared Recovery Mandate.
The tentative agreement covers approximately 680 drivers, as well as service and maintenance staff working at BC Transit in Greater Victoria.
Negotiations under the Shared Recovery Mandate support government’s key priorities to improve public services and the health-care system, while supporting the Province’s continued economic recovery for all.
Details about the agreement will be available after the ratification process for the union members and the BC Transit board is complete.
More than 500,000 people work across the provincial public sector in the core public service, at Crown corporations, in health, community social services, kindergarten-to-Grade 12 public education and at post-secondary institutions and research universities.
Of those people, approximately 393,000 are unionized employees paid under collective agreements or professionals paid through negotiated compensation agreements.
