Ddsb Custodian Collective Agreement

The Durham District School Board (DDSB) has reached a collective agreement with its custodians that will impact over 300 employees. The new agreement was ratified by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 218 and will be in effect until August 2022.

The agreement includes a 2% wage increase in each year of the three-year contract. It also addresses several issues related to job security, including the creation of a labour management committee to address workplace issues and the protection of full-time jobs.

In addition, the agreement provides more job opportunities for part-time employees who are seeking full-time status. This will help to improve overall job security for DDSB custodians.

The collective agreement also includes provisions for training and development opportunities for custodians. This will help to ensure that DDSB custodians have the necessary skills and knowledge to provide high-quality services to the schools and buildings they maintain.

Finally, the agreement includes language related to health and safety in the workplace. The DDSB and CUPE Local 218 have agreed to work together to ensure that custodians have access to the necessary equipment and training to maintain a safe and healthy working environment.

Overall, the DDSB custodian collective agreement is a positive step forward for custodians at the board. With increased job security, wage increases, and training opportunities, DDSB custodians will be better positioned to provide high-quality services to schools and buildings within the board.
