A media release reports the Town of South Bruce Peninsula and their Parks, Recreation and Public Works employees have successfully negotiated a new collective agreement.

The agreement for members of SEIU Local 2 was achieved through months of negotiation and compromises from both parties.

Effective Friday April 8th 2022, all employees are back on the job and any impacted services return to normal.

The release reported there should be no noticeable delays to annual spring maintenance activities.

Mayor Jackson says “This has been a very difficult week for everyone. I want to thank our workers for negotiating with us a 9% increase over three years. We believe a fair deal has been struck and we are thrilled to see our staff return to work”.
