Capilano University strike nearing close as tentative agreement reached

Weeks after classes were suspended at North Vancouver’s Capilano University due to strike action, the union representing workers says a tentative agreement has been reached.

In a news release from MoveUP, it says a tentative agreement on a new collective agreement has been reached and is now pending ratification.

“As a result of the tentative agreement, the picket lines will be coming down and members will be returning to work. Voting on the tentative agreement will take place over the coming days,” a news release reads.

Classes were initially suspended on June 6 at the university, when workers amped up the ongoing strike action.

At the time, the university said the sides had been in negotiations for a new collective agreement since May 25, 2022.

MoveUP says the terms of the deal will be released at a later date, although the main issue has been remote work.
