Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen and British Columbia Government Employees Union Ratify Collective AgreementRegional District of Okanagan-Similkameen
PENTICTON - The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) is pleased to announce the ratification of a four-year collective agreement with the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union (BCGEU).
The term of the agreement is effective January 1, 2020 with an annual wage increase of 2%. Other modifications to the collective agreement were minor in nature and reflected the changes in regulations and other outdated aspects of the former agreement.
“We appreciate the value our union employees bring to the RDOS,” says RDOS Chair Karla Kozakevich. “The Board is pleased that an amicable agreement has been reached that will take us through the next four years.”
The previous agreement expired December 31, 2019 and contract negotiations concluded on February 25, 2020. The RDOS Board of Directors voted in favour of the proposal at the regular meeting on March 5, 2020.
