SYDNEY, Nova Scotia, November 25, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Municipal workers with Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM), represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 759, reached a tentative agreement with their employer yesterday.

"I’d like to thank our bargaining committee who worked hard on behalf of our members to reach this deal," said Kevin Ivey, president of CUPE 759. "We are pleased to recommend this tentative agreement to members for acceptance."

Details of the contract will not be made available until it has been presented to CUPE 759 members and both sides have ratified the agreement.
