FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. -- A tentative deal has been reached between the B.C. General Employees’ Union and their administrative support staff.

They joined close to 150 other members across B.C. on the picket lines last week. They were calling for flexibility to work from home during the pandemic, manageable workloads, and better pay.

The workers are members of the movement of the United Professionals Union. The collective agreement expired at the end of March.

No date has been set for members to ratify the new deal and the union says there will be no further job action while the two parties continue to work on the details.
