"...a high-ranking city official reports that CUPE salaries jumped by a whopping 16 per cent during the last four years.

That's fully 4 per cent higher than the 12 per cent pay hike CUPE 5167 workers negotiated in their last contract with the city.

In an email obtained by The Spectator, Rob Rossini, general manager of finance and corporate services, attributes the additional increase to a salary-adjusting job evaluation program.

Rossini also notes that during the same time frame — 2007 to 2010 — inflation increased by 6.6 per cent.

That means, according to city figures, salary increases for the CUPE local were almost 10 per cent above the rate of inflation.

The union, which represents some 3,200 inside and outside workers, is now asking for 4.25 per cent pay hike over two years."
