The City of Revelstoke and the union representing its employees have come to terms on a new five-year collective agreement.
The city announced the deal with the Canadian Union of Public Employees local 363 on Monday afternoon.
“Mayor and council are supportive and appreciative of the collaborative effort displayed by management and CUPE members that was essential in completing this agreement,” said Mayor Mark McKee in a news release.
The agreement includes an 8.5 per cent wage increase over five years, or about 1.6 per cent per year.
CUPE 363 president Chris Selvig told the Review that most of the matters that needed addressing were housekeeping. He said the agreement had been ratified by union members and that they were happy with the deal.
The union has been without a contract since the end of 2013 and start of the contract is retroactive to 2014.
