Local 97 – CDHA Nurses – Proposals Exchanged
Your bargaining committee met with your Employer on Thursday, September 26th for the purpose of exchanging bargaining proposals.
Based on input received from the membership of the Nurses’ Bargaining unit, a number of issues will be of the utmost importance to achieve.
The Union is committed to ensuring that NSGEU nurses continue to be paid the highest wages in Atlantic Canada and the middle of the Canadian pack. We are also seeking to introduce an increment at 20 years
We have also tabled a comprehensive proposal to address Nurse/Patient ratios.
As well, we have tabled a proposal regarding Psychological Health and Safety in the work place.
We are asking the Employer to work in cooperation with the Union to implement the National Standard that has been commissioned by Mental Health Commission of Canada.
We are seeking a numbers of other improvements to your collective agreement such as Scheduling, increases in Standby pay, Transportation Allowance, Rest Interval after Callback, Shift and Weekend Premium, Education Leave and several other issues.
A copy of the union’s proposals will be mailed out to you this week. Please watch for it in the mail, and if you do not receive a copy soon, get in touch with us so we can ensure we have your current contact information.
We have scheduled 6 additional days for negotiations:
- October 10th, 11th, 24th & 25th
- November 4th and 5th
Local 97 will be holding a Local meeting on Monday, October 21 at 6 pm at the new NSGEU office at 255 John Savage Ave. in Burnside
We encourage you to review the full proposal package and hope you can attend the meeting scheduled for October 21st.
Please watch for further updates.
