The Calgary Board of Education has worked out a new collective agreement with CUPE.
On Friday, the CBE announced that trustees had agreed to the deal.
The agreement has a two-year term expiring in August 2017, but is retroactive to September 2015.
The first year of the contract will have no wage increase, but it has been left open to further wage and compensation negotiations in the second year.
“We are happy to come to a fair agreement with our CUPE employees. The tough economic climate continues to challenge us and we are glad to have the support of these employees, who hold essential roles in our system,” said Board of Trustees chair Joy Bowen-Eyre.
