Health Administrative Professionals Bargaining Unit Bargaining Update: Final Settlement Offer Received, Acceptance Recommended
Your bargaining team has now received a final offer of settlement from the employers that they are willing to recommend to the bargaining unit for acceptance.
As per our previous update of Tuesday, March 28th, your bargaining team presented a new offer to the employers, to which they have now responded with their own offer. This new offer from the employer contains some key language changes that your bargaining team deemed necessary to form an agreement.
At this time, the bargaining team will now begin the process to ratify this tentative agreement. This means the tentative agreement will be presented to the membership and you will have an opportunity to vote on acceptance or not. Your bargaining committee is recommending acceptance.
Please keep an eye out for information session and voting details to be shared in the coming days. As the meetings and voting encompass the province as a whole, including multiple unions, the process may take place over the next few weeks.
Your committee appreciates the patience and support you’ve shown throughout this difficult round of bargaining.
The Health Authorities Act, passed by the provincial government in 2014, requires all Administrative Professionals employed at Nova Scotia Health (NSH) and IWK to bargain together in a Council of Administrative Professionals bargaining unit. Under the four Council constitutions, one union appoints the chief negotiator for each Council. CUPE appoints the Chief Negotiator for the Administrative Professionals Council while NSGEU has the majority of bargaining committee members. You can view the Council Constitutions here.)
As always, reach out to any member of your Bargaining Committee with any questions or concerns.
