A memorandum of agreement was signed by the town and the union on February 22, 2016 and was ratified by the Union and Council at their respective meetings on Monday night, February 29, 2016.
The new collective agreement is in effect from February 16, 2016 to February 15, 2019 and provides members with wage increases of 1.5% per cent in each of the three years.
