Local 1858 is happy to announce that the 2022-2025 Collective Agreement is now ratified. While Local 1858 and VIU will be making a joint statement shortly, this announcement was made at our General Membership meeting earlier today and members will no doubt have questions about claiming retro-wages for the period July 1, 2022, to May 16, 2023.
Former members, who are not currently employed at VIU, need to apply for their retro-wages. The 2022-2025 Retro-Wage Claim Process is described in a letter on our Forms page. A link is provided here for your convenience: 2022-25 Retro Wage Claim Process Notice
If you are a former regular/casual/temporary member of Local 1858 who was employed at VIU at any point between July 1, 2022, and May 16, 2023, please refer to this letter for more details on how to apply for your retro-wages.
Please feel free to share this letter with any other former members you know who fit the eligibility criteria. The deadline to apply for this retro-wage payment is June 25, 2023.
If you have any questions, please contact Local 1858 as per the notice.
