Bcgeu Collective Agreement Wage Increases
Autor: Anna Pilsniak. Kategorie: Bez kategorii .
The agreement was eagerly awaited due to the number of public sector unions with collective agreements expiring in 2019. „It`s an asset to the NDP,” said Mark Thompson, a professor emeritus at UBC`s Sauder School of Business, who said the deal would likely be the benchmark for government negotiations with other unions. The proposed new contract between government B.C and B.C. Government and Service Employees` Union (BCGEU) will keep wage increases around the rate of inflation. The Finance Ministry confirmed the wage increases to CBC News, but declined to comment on the details of the deal. „We`d like to look at the fine print, but the union settled for the status quo, so there could be something else they received than the salary.” „It is important that the union has the necessary time to communicate the details of the agreement with its members during the ratification process,” he said. CBC News has learned that the preliminary agreement, which employs 21,800 people, features annual wage increases of 2% over the next three years. He said, however, that union negotiators could be satisfied with the overall agreement.

The agreement has yet to be ratified by the BCGEU and the province said it would only release the details at that time. „The accusation is that they will give the store to the public sector unions, and 2 per cent will certainly not give the store, no matter what someone says.
