Majority of non-monetary items resolved
Your negotiating team has been diligently working with the employer to resolve all outstanding items and to begin monetary negotiations. We are pleased to report that bargaining with the employer has been amicable and they continue to work with us to address our concerns.
Though there are still outstanding non-monetary items including Definitions, Union Representation, Workplace Privacy, Health and Safety, Job Postings, and Leaves of Absence, these matters will be addressed as negotiations proceed.
We have tabled a comprehensive monetary proposal that we feel is a fair resolution to our members’ concerns. We will advocate for all monetary requests to be met in full. The proposal is as follows:
- Effective Date of Certification (April 8, 2022) – Increase wage scales by 7% retroactive to date of certification
- Effective April 1, 2023 – Percentage increase equal to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) in Alberta as of April 1, 2023
- Effective April 1, 2024 – Percentage increase equal to the CPI in Alberta as of April 1, 2024
The employer has informed us that they will have a comprehensive response to our proposal, including monetary items, at our next bargaining meeting on February 17.
Please reach out to your negotiating team with any questions or comments. A reminder that any workplace issues can be discussed with your Membership Services Officer, Guy Quenneville at email@example.com.
