Sgeu Collective Agreement 2018

Filed under: Allgemein — @ 14:26

Collective agreements include all employees of the executive and a large number of authorities attached to the ministries. While the union has a strike mandate, more work needs to be done before workers go on strike. One of them is to return to the bargaining table, but Bymoen said the union and the government must also reach an agreement on essential services before employees are able to strike. „Legislation on essential services in its current form makes free collective bargaining virtually impossible.“ The members of the SGEU had a strike mandate in force since the summer of 2018. Last month, about 5,000 Crown Group employees began a 17-day strike under the Unifor banner. A provisional agreement was reached on 20 October. The province and the Saskatchewan Union of General Employees (SGEU) have agreed on a new collective agreement that provides for a seven per cent increase over six years. „This mandate sends a strong and clear message to the government that our members are serious about implementing a fair and reasonable collective agreement that protects their rights and improves their wages and benefits,“ said Barry Nowoselsky, Chair of the PS/GE Bargaining Committee in the August 1 press release. This agreement includes about 11,000 SGEU members who work as motorway transport agents and equipment operators, proofreaders, parking staff, nature conservation officers, social workers and many other sectors of the public sector. „Our goal is always to negotiate a successful agreement,“ he said.

„The strike is one of the last options in our toolbox for bargaining.“ Negotiations are ongoing before the collective agreement expires in 2016. Bymoen declined to comment on some of the issues that separated the two sides. „Our next step will be to negotiate an essential services agreement to ensure that the level of service is maintained in the critical areas of our citizens` needs. We continue to look forward to a negotiated solution. The EMS must negotiate critical service agreements with the Government of Saskatchewan before an employment measure can take place under the Saskatchewan Employment Act, bossaer says. „There is also a language in the parts of the contract that govern the relationship. We hope to find our way through it. Members of the public service/government collective unit, which includes social workers, forest firefighters, highway workers, laboratory technicians, alogists, prison officers and others, have been without a collective agreement since September 30, 2016. Many of the bargaining unit members work less than full-time and work as part-time, casual, seasonal or full-time workers. „The bargaining committee felt that the government did not take this as seriously as it should, so we hope the parties can now come together with a strike mandate, resolve their differences and reach a collective agreement.“ „I welcome the commitment and cooperation of both parties towards a new collective agreement,“ said Ken Cheveldayoff, Minister responsible for the Public Service Commission. . . .
