Collective Agreement Upse

September 14th, 2021

Charlottetown (October 21, 2010) – Pei UPSThe more than a thousand members working for the provincial government`s Department of Health and Wellness have a renewed collective agreement that will be extended retroactively from April 2009 to March 31, 2012. Shelley Ward, President of PEI UPSE, said: “The bargaining team for our health care members deserves to be commended for their hard work and commitment during the negotiation process. By working together, we have reached a fair agreement for our members who provide essential health services to the people of Prince Edward Island every day. More than 1,000 health care workers, members of the PEI Union of Public Sector Employees (PEI UPSE/NUPGE) have a new collective agreement. Arbitrator Thomas Kuttner preferred the arbitration award earlier this week. Negotiations between PEI UPSE and the Ministry of Health and Welfare began in April 2009 and moved to conciliation in March 2010, after the negotiating teams could not reach an agreement. Mediation did not bring the parties together and monetary issues were a major stumbling blocks. As a result, PEI UPSE and the Ministry of Health and Welfare introduced a mandatory interest rate arbitration procedure on 21, 22 September and 1 October 2010. Arbitrator Thomas Kuttner presented on October 19, 2010 the arbitration award that allowed the members of the PEI UPSE Department of Health and Wellness to increase by 6%: April 1, 2009 (2%), October 1, 2009 (2%), October 1, 2010 (1%) and October 1, 2011 (1%). She explained that “packages of price details have been sent to all PEI UPSE health members and that the union will launch a province-round road show to explain the new salaries and benefits.” In addition to the overall 6% economic increase for all MEMBERS of the PEI UPSE Department of Health and Wellness, a shift bonus of $0.25 as well as salary adjustments for licensed nurse practitioners (8%), psychologists ($6.00), language pathologists, audiologists, social workers, and dieticians/nutritionists (2%) were granted to make them compatible with their Atlantic counterparts. . .
