Administrative history

The first collective agreement between the Halifax Civic Employees Local Union Number 143 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (C.U.P.E.) and the City of Halifax appears to have been made in February of 1967. The union, whose chief officers included a president, secretary, and treasurer, acted as the collective bargaining agent for full-time permanent administrative employees. While this local now appears to be inactive, collective agreements between the city and the union were in place until 1991.
