Bargaining Update: AHS proposes Memorandum of Agreement extensions

Text only block

Alberta Health Services (AHS) has approached your GSS and Nursing Care negotiating teams with a proposal to extend our recent Memorandums of Agreement until June 30, 2021. AHS has also asked if we would agree to suspend collective bargaining until June 30. 

The current Memorandums of Agreement, which your AUPE negotiating teams secured in January, gives AUPE GSS and AUPE Nursing Care members job security, access to COVID-19 isolation pay, one hour’s pay for attending COVID-19 vaccine appointments during work hours, and more. However, both Memorandums expire on March 31, 2021. 

With the end of March fast approaching, your negotiating teams are taking the newly proposed offer of extension from AHS very seriously. We will meet to discuss this offer and whether it meets our needs as AUPE members. 

Both AHS GSS and Nursing Care teams will update members once we have made our decisions.

Our power comes from us acting collectively. And the more we strengthen our solidarity and stay informed, the more powerful we’ll be. AUPE members and our colleagues have persevered through many challenges this past year, and we will make it through the rest of this pandemic if we stick together.

Please talk to your negotiating team members or AUPE resource staff if you have any questions. Contact your Local’s negotiating representatives to see how you can get involved and make sure you and your co-workers are informed. We are here to support you!
