Once officially signed, the collective agreement with cover the period from 2013 to 2018. The city currently has approximately 150 white collar employees.

The general terms of the agreement will be released once the agreement is official signed in the next few weeks.

“We thank both unions for working with us to find terms acceptable to both sides, and which are in the interest of our workers and our taxpayers,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “We have long enjoyed very good relations with our unions and these agreements demonstrate the value of mutual respect and reasonable compromises.”

Côte Saint-Luc also has four days of negotiations scheduled in the next two weeks to try to finalize the collective agreement with its blue collar workers.
