Tentative agreement ratified

Your bargaining team is pleased to report we ratified our collective agreement last week after the employer and the majority of you voted in favour of the tentative agreement.

Our agreement runs from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2020. The protections we secured will make for a fairer workplace, where we will be able to take care of ourselves better, so we can continue caring for residents.

Some of these provisions include improvements to our Employee Benefits Plan, Flexible Spending Account, leaves of absence, annual vacation, coverage for different medical devices and more, which you can read about in the draft collective agreement below.

Despite getting off to a rocky start, bargaining progressed, and because you continued to stand behind each other throughout the process, we’ll now have a more respectful workplace. Thank you for all you hard work and support. If you have any questions, please contact us – we’re here to support you during bargaining and after.
