IAFF Local 1517 members have ratified a five-year Collective Agreement. The agreement covers January 1, 2020, to December 31, 2024.
Wages will increase by 2.5% per year between 2020 and 2021.
Increases for years 2022, 2023, and 2024 are not to exceed the majority of the Lower Mainland Municipalities.
Typically that means future increases will be based on an average of increases received by lower mainland firefighters
(IE, Vancouver, Surrey, Richmond, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Township of Langley, Abbotsford, District of North Vancouver, Delta, Chilliwack, Maple Ridge, Port Coquitlam, District of New Westminster, City of North Vancouver, and District of West Vancouver.)
The Collective Agreement also includes "adjustments and several housekeeping changes".
