Whitehorse City Council Collective Agreement 2019

Some employees are not covered by a bonus or enterprise agreement. These workers are subject to a national minimum wage scheme for a minimum wage safety net. Larger pay cheques will be paid to the City of Whitehorse administration after Whitehorse City Council passed the third reading of a law on September 28 that regulates employees` salaries until 2022 and excludes them confidentially. INTEREST BASED-BARGAINING: Management`s approaches to “interest-based negotiations” in these negotiations have been abandoned. Their union, ASU and other Australian Nurses Midwives Federation and Australian Professionals have all expressed concern about this approach. CEO Noelene Duff confirmed this result in the “Employee Update” distributed on March 15, 2019 and indicated that each ASU delegate would be directly involved in the negotiations. Enterprise agreements must not contain illegal content (for example. B discriminatory or offensive conditions). There was no discussion in the Council before the vote, but in an interview after the Council meeting, Coun. Samson Hartland said the increases were “long overdue” and stressed that one-year and nine-month management had no new target.

The increases are outlined in each of the four years of anarchy, starting with a 2.6% increase retroactive to 2019. “The new regulations provide for the creation of salary ranges tailored to each position within the management group,” said an administrative report prior to the City Council. Schneider explained this because the city is moving from the current system to a market-based compensation system, which compensates for similar positions in other sectors and organizations. He will see that the pay scales for certain positions will be changed. The employer`s RRSP contribution also increases by one per cent. According to the project regulations, the minimum contribution required is 14 per cent, the city contributes 9 per cent, the worker 5 per cent. Under the regulations, the health benefit is also increasing from the current $500 per year to $1,500, an amount “that will better reflect the health expenditures of the average Canadian family,” according to a report to the Council. NEGOTIATIONS ON THE WAGES – CONDITIONS: The existing EA expires on December 8, 2019, the next pay increase expires in September 2019 and negotiations between management and unions will begin this month. The first meeting was held yesterday afternoon to discuss administrative issues.
