Your negotiating committee can report that members have ratified the bargaining package – which contained items agreed to in collective bargaining and recommended by the mediator – on March 7 following a mail-in ratification vote at union headquarters.
The employer has until March 10 to ratify.
Upon the employer’s ratification, the agreement, retroactive to April 1, 2015, includes a 1.2 per cent increase for 2015-16 and a 0.8 per cent increase for 2016-17, with improvements to benefits and language. It will expire March 31, 2017.
Former ANC members who worked for AHS within this time period must apply for retro pay within 60 days of full ratification by contacting the human resources department in their zone.
Preparations for your next round of negotiations are underway, which your union will use to address members’ issues, both new and unresolved.
Your committee would again like to thank members for the patience and resolve shown throughout this difficult round of bargaining.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact a member of your committee with any questions, comments or concerns you may have.
