Pea Collective Agreement
Recent collective bargaining may be of interest to AEP members, as they refer to them in the preparation of negotiations. As has already been reported, the University and the Professional Association (PEA) have successfully negotiated a new collective agreement for the period from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2022. The agreement, which was fully negotiated as part of the BC government`s negotiating mandate on sustainable services, was ratified by both parties and approved by the Public Sector Management Council. The health researchers` collective agreement is negotiated between employers and the Health Science Professionals Bargaining Association (HSPBA). It has more than 16,000 members of the HSA as well as members of the Employees Union Hospital (HEU), the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), the Professional Association of Employees (PEA) and the BC Government Employees Union (BCGEU). On October 29, 2019, an agreement was reached on the details of the HSPBA pay rates negotiated for the 2019-2022 Health Researchers Collective Agreement. You can find the final salary schedules here. Please note that there are several professional schedules and you must refer to the salary schedule that corresponds to your profession. The AEP would like to keep you informed of the collective bargaining process and how to keep you informed of the latest information in the work. In this section of the site, you will find information and resources on collective bargaining, conflicts and strike policies. Other changes to the collective agreement include: the collective agreement, which is now available on the staff website, contains a number of updates and changes as a result of the negotiation process.
In some cases, the amendments led to approved operating savings and these savings were then diverted to support other changes to the agreement. Some changes to health and extended dental plans have also been negotiated. These changes are introduced for the duration of the agreement. The new collective agreement is now available as a reference on the staff website. Members and directors should be aware that this proposed collective agreement may contain errors and omissions that will be corrected in the coming months when the agreement is concluded and printed.
