Members concerns continue to fall on deaf ears
Since our last update your negotiating team met with the employer on June 10 and October 5. We had planned for two other meetings in September and October, but they were cancelled by the employer.
Our Chartwell Emerald Hills members have been concerned about short staffing, workload and parking (amongst other things), and these concerns continue to fall on deaf ears with the employer.
Nevertheless, finalized collective agreements between AUPE and Chartwell at other sites have helped to move the bargaining process forward somewhat.
We have signed off on the following non-monetary articles:
Article 1 Definitions
Article 2 partial Term, Copies and Application of the Collective Agreement
Article 3 Management Rights
Article 4 Union Security, Recognition and Rights
Article 5 Dues Deduction
Article 6 partial Union Representation
Article 7 Workplace Privacy
Article 8 Employer - Union Relations
Article 9 Respectful Workplace - No Discrimination or Harassment
Article 10 Occupational Health and Safety
Article 12 Grievance Procedure
Letter Of Understanding 1 Health Care Aides designated as Health Professionals
We are awaiting Chartwell’s response on scheduling subsequent dates in the new year to complete discussions on non-monetary parts of the collective agreement.
In the meantime, please remember to:
