QUALICUM BEACH, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 28, 2015) - Locked out municipal workers in Qualicum Beach have voted to accept a mediator's recommendations for a new contract. The vote was held this afternoon by members of CUPE Local 401.

The BC Labour Relations Board mediator's recommendations were made after a meeting with the town and its union employees this week. The Qualicum Beach Town Council says it plans to discuss the recommendations at a special in-camera meeting early next week.

The 65 workers were locked out of their jobs a month ago and have been without a contract since 2013.
