Hsaa Ahs Union Agreementadmin
„This is a significant improvement over the employers` initial proposal to pay one week`s pay for each year of service to a maximum of 26 weeks,“ the union said. „This letter of understanding does not include any members employed by Covenant Health. They are currently studying a separate program that can be accepted for Covenant employees. The union, which represents 27,000 front-line health care workers, says it is not satisfied with the way Alberta health services treat casual workers during the covid-19 pandemic. The Public Sector Wage Arbitration Deferral Act (Bill 9), which was passed on June 20, 2019 In law, Alberta`s 180,000 public service employees, represented by unions in 24 collective agreements, including the HSAA, were presented until August, when Janice MacKinnon`s „Report and Recommendations“ Blue Ribbon Panel on Alberta`s Finance“ was presented.   „We continue to work with our unions to work together and inform them of our rapid response to COVID-19.“ The United Conservative Party (UCP) government, led by Premier Jason Kenney and Alberta Health Services, has informed the Alberta Health Sciences Association, United Nurses of Alberta and the Alberta Provincial Employees Union of the government`s intentions to „eliminate between 6,400 and 7,400 unionized public sector jobs by 2023.“  Last month, Parker stated that letters sent by the government in the fall to unions, which several unions said were prepared to face possible layoffs, had arrived without consultation. Hours after the union called the province`s health minister on social media because it refused to meet with them, a spokesman for Tyler Shandro said his team would contact the Alberta Health Sciences Association to schedule a meeting. Parker says he has been pushing AHS to temporarily change the collective agreement for more than a month. Yesterday (April 23), the Alberta Health Sciences Association (HSAA), the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees (AUPE) and United Nurses of Alberta (UNA) negotiated an agreement with alberta Health Services (AHS) that sets out the parameters for this temporary redeployment of staff.
