NORTH BATTLEFORD - The City of North Battleford has approved a new collective bargaining agreement with its Community Safety Officers.
The deal was announced at Monday’s council meeting. According to Director of Corporate Services Jennifer Niesink, the City and the CSO’s bargaining group came to a deal calling for annual increases of 1.8, 2.0 and 2.1 per cent, respectively.
Council voted in favour of the resolution approving the deal and authorizing the mayor and city clerk to sign the contract.
This latest negotiation follows another collective agreement reached between the City and the Canadian Union of Public Employees No. 287. That agreement was announced at council in late November.
