The City of Red Deer has a new collective agreement with the Canadian Union of Public Employees, which represents more than 900 local municipal workers.

On Monday, city council ratified a three-year agreement with CUPE Local 417, which represents city employees in a variety of indoor and outdoor positions.

Effective from Jan. 1, 2021, to Dec. 31, 2023, it includes the following wage provisions: no wage increase for 2021 or 2022, and a 1.5 per cent wage increase for 2023. The mediated settlement also includes a one-time payment to CUPE employees to adjust for inflation which will be paid on the first pay day after Jan. 1, 2023.

The amount each person receives is dependent on their employment status: $100 for casual employees, $250 for part-time employees and $500 for full-time employees,

Organizational costs associated with the agreement are funded through The City’s operating budget.
