This province just reached deal with 23K-employee union

Alberta's largest pubic sector union has reached a tentative deal with the provincial government on a new contract.

Details of the three-year agreement for 23,000 Alberta Union of Provincial Employees members were not released.

A mail-in ratification vote is planned over the next few weeks and if approved by members the agreement would expire on March 31, 2020.

Finance Minister Joe Ceci thanked negotiators on both sides.

Along with this deal, the government has reached agreements with the Alberta Teachers' Association, Health Sciences Association of Alberta and the United Nurses of Alberta.

Negotiations continue on contracts that cover Alberta Health Services workers.
