While an official contract has not been drafted, there are signs of progress between the City of Castlegar and employees belonging to the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 2262.

Specifically, both parties have agreed on how they will move forward towards securing a new contract, although the details of the contract itself have not been released. In fact, along with the procedural agreement comes a move to impose a publication ban on the situation overall, with both parties agreeing to not talk to the press until an official settlement has been reached.

However, once a contract is signed, both parties have agreed to notify the press.

There has been no official contract between the City of Castlegar and CUPE 2262 since February 2013 with mediation talks grinding to a halt in July 2014.
