NAPE CNA Faculty Members Vote to Accept Agreement

ST. JOHN’S, NL – Voting for the faculty bargaining unit at the College of the North Atlantic (CNA), who are members of the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Public and Private Employees (NAPE), has concluded. Votes took place province-wide over the past several days.

CNA faculty members voted in favour of accepting the agreement. The tentative agreement is based on the template agreement for other public sector workers.

“This has been a long and arduous round of bargaining,” said NAPE President Carol Furlong. “We will now work to get the agreement signed as quickly as possible.”

NAPE represents over 650 Faculty members at CNA across the province.

The new Agreement is effective as of September 1, 2012 and is set to expire on August 31, 2016.
