Members of the Black Press Lower Mainland bargaining unit voted 128 -84 (60%) to turn down a proposed rollover of their collective agreement.

The company was proposing a four-year contract with wage increases of 0%, 0%, 1% and 2%.

Over 80 per cent of the membership voted.

The next step will be to form a bargaining committee and engage in formal bargaining with the company.
