The parties concluded the negotiations just days before the B.C. health chief announced social and physical withdrawal rules to combat the spread of COVID-19. As a result, CUPE 2950 had to find new creative ways to ratify its provisional agreement, amid rules that prevent both personal union assemblies and conventional ratification voting. The University of British Columbia and CUPE 2950, the union that represents the institution`s office, library and theatre employees, ratified a new collective agreement after negotiations in early March. The employees of Point Grey Campus as trades, food and hospitality services, technicians and research assistants, as well as in various positions covered by schedule A. CUPE 116`s CUPE 116 agreement, also represents aquatic Centre staff under a separate collective agreement. Starting wages are mandatory in collective agreements and described in the salary schedules published in this section for UBC worker groups that have negotiated wage ranges. CUPE 116 Collective Agreement Aquatic Centre Convention Among the key elements of the new convention was a provision for domestic violence leave paid for up to five days for members or their loved ones. The agreement also addresses the historically low wages of several classifications of workers at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts. .

At UBC, we look at total compensation – a combination of competitive salaries, generous benefits, great retirement plans and support departures. We conduct regular surveys with other employers to ensure that UBC`s wages and overall compensation remain competitive. „CUPE members recognized early on the severity of the COVID-19 crisis, and we have focused in recent weeks on helping UBC move to online and remote platforms,“ Ranalletta said. „Our proactive transition to an online ratification process has allowed us to maintain our high standards of democratic participation, while focusing on the need to ensure that UBC students have completed their courses and programs as planned during this semester.
