Specialized Health Care Professionals Collective Agreement

Although health care workers are the most advanced in negotiations - now without a contract for 30 months - several other unions are trying to renew their own collective agreements. Community social services and private sector employees are subject to three separate agreements: Fredericton (June 04, 2015) - After important negotiations, the Union of New Brunswick (NBU/NUPGE) has entered into interim agreements for two of its negotiating components. If you are unsure of the agreement that covers your job, please contact us. All provisions of the collective agreement apply to workers in public hospitals and health facilities, provided they are amended by this schedule. In all cases where a provision in this schedule conflicts with a provision of the collective agreement, the provision in this schedule is a priority. When CBC requested the amount, Vicky Deschenes, a spokeswoman for the Department of Finance, said that no fixed amount had been specifically budgeted for union negotiations because the funding would depend on the agreements actually signed. The negotiation teams of Resource Services and Specialized Health Care Professionals negotiated last week with representatives of the state government. Preliminary agreements were reached over the weekend. All HSA members in the public health sector are covered by one of three major collective agreements: "If you reduce and reduce and reduce — and with an aging population, I think people who work in the health care system, in the retirement home sector can see what will happen in the next five, ten, fifteen years, and they cannot imagine the rest of their careers under those conditions." A worker who must work on paid leave is paid for all hours worked from 00:01 to 24:00 on paid leave, at the current rate of overtime. During last month`s budget, it was reported that the New Brunswick government was making money available for wage increases for 18 public sector unions whose contracts have expired or are about to expire.

Martin said the question would be whether the Higgs government would impose its agenda or decide to defend itself if public opinion swings in favor of unionized workers. The NBU/NUPGE looks forward to the next stage of this process, which will present the general membership agreements of these groups, the answer to their questions and a ratification vote. Section 32 applies to all stanton Yellowknife Hospital staff who were on duty on April 1, 1979 and, to that end, the original staff date is considered to be the staffing date at Stanton Yellowknife Hospital prior to April 1, 1979. These workers are on a list provided by the Union Hospital of 16 October 1979. Workers hired after April 1, 1979 qualify from their original date in accordance with the collective agreement. The above provisions do not prohibit any permanent regulation of the evening or night shift which can be agreed by the hospital or health facility, the workers concerned and the local EU company.
