CRD Rollover Agreement
The current collective agreement with the CRD (Capital Regional District) expired on December 31, 2020.
Given the pandemic the Union and the employer’s bargaining agent – the Greater Victoria Labour Relations Association (GVLRA) – negotiated a rollover agreement for 1 year, including a 2% pay raise on January 1, 2021. This was discussed at the General Membership meeting on November 25, 2020, and on-line voting took place afterwards. The membership voted overwhelmingly in favour of accepting the rollover agreement. Please read the FAQ and the summary below.
Memorandum of Agreement with the GVLRA and CRD:
- The terms and conditions of the current 2017-2020 collective agreement will continue to apply for one (1) year, until December 31, 2021.
- Effective January 1, 2021, a two per cent (2.0 %) general wage increase shall be applied to the existing wages schedules.
