CUPE 387 – Bargaining Bulletin

May 3, 2023

Dear members,

Your bargaining committee met last week for a day of negotiations.  We made some progress on a small number of non-monetary and housekeeping proposals.

We are encouraged that this progress was made and that we have secured additional dates.  There are many significant issues still to be negotiated such as wage and benefit improvements, while also meaningfully addressing the recruitment and retention issue the employers face.  We anticipate these issues will be discussed at upcoming bargaining sessions this month and into June.

We remain committed to reaching a deal that is both in line with other regional settlements and reflects the current economic climate and the last impact inflation has had on the cost of living.

We will be reaching out again following each of the bargaining dates with further updates.

The best way to ensure you receive all further bargaining updates is to regularly monitor the CUPE 387 website and ensure CUPE 387 has your up-to-date email contact information by emailing your personal (non-work) email address to

In solidarity,
Your CUPE 387 Bargaining Committee
