Written by Staff on December 22, 2020
It provides an annual salary increase (5.25 percent, total, over the duration of the agreement, or $16.5 million) and higher work and weekend bonuses. Airport nurses and firefighters will benefit from additional market adaptation. Some $46,000 is also expected to be spent on community aid and remote bonuses. “Many hours of hard work have been done by teams on both sides to secure this collective agreement.” The three-year collective agreement, which came into force on July 15, is the culmination of nine months of negotiations, Geick said. The three-year contract has an expiry date of December 31, 2021. The staff covered by the agreement, approximately 4,100 in total, are represented by the Public Utilities Alliance of Canada and the YEU. The agreement also allows “a worker who experiences a traumatic incident in the context of work to obtain leave without loss of pay for the remainder of the planned working day,” says a press release from the territory`s government. Richard Mostyn, the minister responsible for the Public Service Commission, said in the communication that the agreement balances the needs of workers with the government`s commitment to public services for Yukoners. The agreement, which expires on December 31, 2021, applies to approximately 4,100 workers represented by the YEU and the Public Service Alliance of Canada.
Earlier this year, the experienced mediator, Vince Ready, was summoned in support and an interim agreement was reached in June. Steve Geick, President of the Yukon Employees Union, speaks at a press conference in Whitehorse on December 18, 2018. According to Geick, a new collective agreement between the Yukon government and the Yukon Workers` Union will allow Yukon workers to take up to 48 hours of paid leave if they experience workplace trauma. (Crystal Schick/Yukon News file) The agreement provides for pay increases totalling 5.25 per cent over three years, including some retroactive pay, as well as increases in salary categories, weekend bonuses and work bonuses for hours worked between 4 .m and 8 .m. The only thing I notice in our Union is that we are a genuine democratic organisation. This commitment to democracy is evident from the moment workers decide to organize and join the European UNION; The majority of workers must sign cards to obtain union certification from the Canadian Industrial Relations Board. From that point on, decisions such as what goes into their collective agreement, whether they accept or reject this collective agreement, are in the hands of the workers. The Yukon Teachers` Association bargaining committee convened its first meeting on December 6, 2017 to negotiate a new collective agreement. A year later, just before the hour, the YTA government and the Yukon government tentatively agreed to amend and renew the collective agreement. The new agreement also contains a number of other wage requirements and protection of the government-sponsored severance package, Geick said. That`s impressive! Very few comments, and no serleistung, since these three poo poo`d would have any agreement. It is as big as a confirmation, as I have already seen for a government contract.
Frankly, is Wilf asleep? The agreement provides for an overall wage increase of 5.25 per cent and 1.75 per cent for each of the three years retroactive to January 1. The previous contract expired on December 31. The Yukon government and its union have ratified a new collective agreement in force starting Monday. Negotiators reached an interim agreement on 7 June. The district cabinet ratified the collective agreement prior to the union ratification process. As with other unions, Geick said the results of the votes will not be published, in addition to the fact that voting members voted in favour of the agreement.
