This seems to be a fairly normal union agreement. On the other hand, we could be like the UK and lay off a large part of our unionised workers for less trained free market workers. This only results in hospital employees working harder for less money and negatively impacting patients` health outcomes. But it`s cheaper! “I am pleased that AHS has submitted a revised work proposal to the UNA in the hope of reaching a new collective agreement with nurses in the province,” Toews said in a statement Wednesday morning. Employees who are expected to work on paid leave receive one and a half times their regular salary and one day off is paid at a mutually acceptable later date. I still haven`t exhausted my salary. This is going to happen in year 9, where I`m going to make almost $110,000. This does not include all benefits paid by the employer, and by then we will have another collective agreement that will increase these maximum staggered wages (and therefore my maximum salary). Here is my situation, I started AHS in 2010. My starting salary was $36.xx/hour. For an annual salary of about $73,000. 4 years later, my salary is $46.xx/hour, for a salary of $93,000. In 4 years, my salary has increased by $20,000 due to level increases and annual salary increases! I received two annual increases, one on my birthday and one on April 1.

Personally, I love it, but as a taxpayer, I realize it`s a bit ridiculous. We have made a modest but important amendment to clause 8, which includes the future agreement, including the unique structure of the Lamont Health Care Centre. We are also considering proposed amendments to clause 9, investigations that require even more back and forth with the employer. examine and consider any other point of mutual agreement between the Parties with regard to the field of activity concerned; AUPE has filed a political complaint with AHS in the hope that they will recognize the party. We believe they must recognize the day in accordance with our collective agreement. The wording of our agreement was negotiated in good faith, but AHS is trying to get away with it and make excuses. Your team`s disappointment with AHS on this issue is immeasurable. The parties agree that during the period during which this Agreement exists, the requirement of clauses 9.05 and 9.06 of Subsidiary 10 will be waived and that dormant days will be managed in accordance with the list. UNA said it was pleased that “offensive setbacks, including a three per cent reduction in the salary package, had been abandoned. However, the union added that there were still areas of concern. We understand the importance of truth and reconciliation and how much a day of rest and reflection would mean to us and our collective efforts to decolonize our workplaces and communities.

The time limits for appealing against the workload may be extended by mutual agreement between the parties. Any matter not expressly addressed in this Agreement may be covered by the provisions of the Collective Agreement. AhS now offers a 5-year collective agreement. Find salary plans and salary grids for positions in the Alberta Public Service Bargaining Unit. The low “job security” proposed by AHS would only cover the first three years of the deal, not the last two – without those already on the hacking block. This is something your team wouldn`t agree with, even if the first three years of job security were solid. This agreement applies only to employees occupying positions covered by subsidiary agreements No 006. Excluded groups include: The four-year agreement also includes a recommendation for UNA members to receive a one-per-cent lump sum payment for each hour worked in 2021 in recognition of their contributions during the pandemic. Two annual lump sum payments, which were a sticking point for AHS, are included in a salary grid.

The United Nurses of Alberta says progress has been made in negotiating a new collective agreement with Alberta Health Services. Thousands of Alberta nurses will receive an increase in funding if they ratify a proposed set of recommendations for a new collective agreement with Alberta Health Services (AHS). Shamefully, however, the AHS does not recognize the newly created federal holiday, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. AhS CEO Dr. Verna Yiu says the recognition of new holidays is not in our collective agreement, but the agreement says otherwise (Article 27, Appointed Holidays). So here`s the only caveat, once I get to year 9, the only wage increases I`ll receive will come from those annual increases that you hear about from the unions. Currently, members of my union receive 1% per year (plus a lump sum of $1000). After the 9th year, I will have maximized my step increases, the incentive to stay will be increased in vacation days (5 days for 5 years), I currently have 4 weeks of vacation. Do I think I need these annual increases? Perhaps an increase in the cost of living would be appropriate, but not the 2-5% increases we have received in the past. In the absence of an amicable agreement on the planning of compensatory leave, payment of overtime must be made before the end of the month following the 6-month period referred to in clause 3.03.

I`m pretty comfortable with what you do and how your salary increases throughout your tenure. Stability in health care and paying less would lead to less for various reasons. The last four-year collective agreement with Alberta Health Services and UNA expired in the spring of 2020. The parties will start negotiations on 15 January 2019 with a view to reaching an agreement on the system for reopening wages. This wage increase should in no way be interpreted as an “opening of the agreement” to negotiations on other issues by either party. The Committee will oversee Michener Services` efforts to ensure that employees who have been retrained in accordance with the provisions of the collective agreement have prior access to vacant or new positions for which they are qualified under the collective agreement. For the purposes of this Agreement, the hours worked per year, as specified in annex A attached, are deemed to meet the normal requirements for an employee registered in Subsidiary No. 006. Business days per year vary over a three-year period, as set out in Appendix B.

Benefits and salaries, as set out in the framework/parallel agreements for Local 006, will not be adjusted upwards or downwards based on the 7-hour, 55-minute day. .
