The MoveUp union says it has reached a tentative agreement with Vernon’s VantageOne Credit Union.

Thirty-four unionized staff began strike action Dec. 14 after contract negotiations broke down. They paused the picketing over the Christmas season and recently began mediation.

The tentative agreement would provide a new collective agreement for workers at two unionized branches in Vernon.

“We are pleased to come to a tentative agreement and will be recommending to our members to vote in favour of this deal,” union vice-president Christy Slusarenko said in a press release Thursday.

“I want to acknowledge our members’ steadfast resolve and the work of our bargaining committee in getting an agreement that is fair for our members. We will continue to work to benefit the long-term interests of this community.”

A ratification vote is being scheduled.

Details of the agreement were not provided.
