The Clerical and Regulatory and Administrative Assistants, Office, Data Processing and Duplicating Equipment Operation bargaining group officially signed its new collective agreement with the provincial government on Tuesday, Sept. 8.
Members of the bargaining team along with New Brunswick Union President (NBU) Susie Proulx-Daigle, NBU legal counsel and chief negotiator Leigh Sprague, Human Resources Minister Denis Landry, Public Safety Minister Stephen Horsman, Government Services Minister Ed Doherty and other government officials took part in the ceremony at Chancery Place in Fredericton.
The terms and conditions of the agreement came into effect upon the signing. This is the second component represented by the NBU to officially sign a new agreement this summer.
"We feel this contract is beneficial for all involved," said Proulx-Daigle. "We were pleased with the process to arrive at this point and feel our members will benefit greatly from this new agreement."
A total of eight groups represented by the NBU have either officially signed new contracts, ratified a new deal or agreed to a tentative collective agreement in the past few months.
