Thanks to nursing-care members submitting bargaining surveys, your negotiating team has a clear picture of your priorities for the next collective-bargaining agreement with Alberta Health Services (AHS).
We have contacted the employer and set up dates to begin bargaining.

  • March 13, 14 (We will exchange the ingoing proposals on March 13);
  • April 17, 18; and
  • April 24, 25.

Meanwhile, the negotiating committee is continuing to work on proposals based on your feedback. We held two days of meetings on Jan. 30 and 31. We will meet again on Feb. 12 and 13.
We are doing a thorough review of the collective agreement to ensure that your new contract addresses your priorities, including staffing levels/workload, scope of practice and total compensation.
On Feb. 13, we will also be meeting with the AUPE negotiating team representing AHS General Support Services (GSS) members.
With these two groups of members heading into bargaining at the same time, it’s important to build solidarity and to support each other. Between the two groups, we have more than 42,000 members. We are stronger when we work together.
If you have any questions, concerns or ideas, please contact a member of your negotiating team.
