Yukon Government Employees Collective Agreement

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 new agreement also contains a number of other wage requirements and protection of the government-sponsored severance package, Geick said. “Many hours of hard work by bargaining teams over the past nine months have led to a collective agreement that will take us over the next three years,” Geick said in a joint press release issued this morning by the union and the Yukon government. Last week, four teams of union representatives, with 4,000 members, visited all municipalities and highway camps across the territory to explain the proposed agreement and collect votes. 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) 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? Negotiators reached an interim agreement on 7 June. The district cabinet ratified the collective agreement prior to the union ratification process.

“Many hours of hard work have been done by teams on both sides to secure this collective agreement.” Geick told the star that the union is not releasing the percentage of workers who voted for, nor the percentage who voted in favour, in accordance with the Constitution of the Public Service Alliance of Canada, the YEU Mothers` Union. Earlier this year, the experienced mediator, Vince Ready, was summoned in support and an interim agreement was reached in June. A new collective agreement signed by the territory`s government and its union includes a first for Canada, says the president of the Yukon Employees Union (YEU). 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 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. 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. Incident leave regulations allow employees to have up to 48 hours of paid leave when they experience workplace trauma, Geick said.
