(Prescott, ON) The Town of Prescott and CUPE Local 2311 have reached a four-year collective bargaining agreement covering the period of January 1, 2021, through December 31, 2024.  A tentative agreement was reached on June 4th after a productive bargaining process.  The agreement was ratification by the Town on June 7th and a vote in favour of the package by Union Members on June 9th.
