Striking support workers at B.C.’s Capilano University have reached a tentative agreement with the school.
Contract language about remote work has been the key sticking point in negotiations.
“As a result of the tentative agreement, the picket lines will be coming down and members will be returning to work,” the union said in a statement.
“Voting on the tentative agreement will take place over the coming days.”
Capilano University said it was “pleased” about the agreement, and that both sides had agreed to a mediator’s recommendations about a return-to-work protocol.
“The agreement is one that works for the union, the University and most importantly, supports the students who have chosen to pursue their education at CapU,” the school said.
“We are focused on resuming normal operations on July 24, 2023, when employees return to work.”
The labour dispute led to cancelled classes for several weeks in June, as faculty members joined the support workers on the picket lines.
