CUPE school board workers from the South Shore Regional School Board are the latest group to vote overwhelmingly in favour of a new contract with the province.

The five-year deal agreed upon last week saw 97 per cent vote in favour. The deal is retroactive to April 1, 2007, and includes wage increases of 2.9 per cent in the first three years, and one per cent in the final two years of the contract.

CUPE was representing about 3,100 school board workers outside the Halifax region in contract negotiations, with all boards so far voting overwhelmingly in favour.
