This page is for the bargaining settlement proposal for the 2019-2022 collective agreement.


Dear members of CUPE Local 917

As we all navigate through these very trying times, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for all the hard work that each person has done to keep our local a very important and positive contributing  factor to the operations of the University of Victoria.

Communication with our members is very important and as we can all appreciate during this time it is also quite difficult. Please check the CUPE 917 home page for information you can also check with the universities webpage for their updates as well.

In the last few days we have sent out an information package to all the email addresses we have available informing all members of a ratification vote. There may be some of you who did not receive this for various reasons but I assure you we did the best possible job we could to get this information out to everyone with the resources available to the local.

I am pleased to announce that we have successfully ratified our collective agreement. Thank you to all who were able to take part in on our first ever online vote as it was our best turnout the locals ever had.

Again I’d like to thank you all and ask that you take care of each other as we move forward through these ever changing times

In solidarity

Byron Spiers
President CUPE
Local 917
