Here is the link: www.unifor.org/COVID19 We filed a complaint on 31 October, directly at the third stage of the appeal procedure, which concludes that “the company has mistakenly interpreted the collective agreement on the right of EDO/the remuneration of eligible workers in the event of a return to the company after strike/lock-out. The comparison sought is “a full remedy, as is appropriated by an arbitrator for each member who has violated his or her collective rights.” In addition, for employees who need information on child care, we would insert you on the subject and the following link: information for workers related to the response to the pandemic, who need child care www.saskatchewan.ca/government/health-care-administration-and-provider-resources/treatment-procedures-and-guidelines/emerging-public-health-issues/2019-novel-coronavirus/information-for-health-care-providers/information-for-workers-associated-with-the-pandemic-response-who-need-child-care He said that all agreements contain the same mandate of the government in terms of wages and maintain wage increases at 5 percent during the duration of the agreements. Unifor Local 112 members of the Hilton Garden Inn Toronto-Mississauga ratified their first collective agreement after weeks of intensive work “Because the agreements were different, we were able to negotiate different performance improvements or improvements to collective agreements from different [crowns] beyond,” Said Doherty. The union, which represents thousands of Crown employees in Saskatchewan, has ratified new collective agreements.

REGINA – After several weeks of voting in Saskatchewan municipalities, Unifor members working at SaskTel, SaskEnergy, SaskPower, SaskWater, DirectWest and SecureTek have ratified the new collective agreements. Directwest announced today that Unifor has voted to ratify a new collective agreement. Although the workers have accepted the agreements, the collective agreements still need to be ratified by two employers, SaskEnergy and SaskPower.

The new five-year collective agreements include a net increase in spending above the five per cent ceiling originally set by the State Government. Scott Doherty, executive assistant to Unifor`s national president, said six separate agreements were ratified Friday, including one for each crown, including the Water Safety Agency. www.unifor.org/en/basic-health-and-safety-during-covid-19 Unifor concluded the vote on October 28, 2019. The current collective agreement expired on March 19, which gave Directwest employees two years of zero for the years 2017-18 and 2018-19.

The new agreement is valid for a three-year term, which expires on March 19, 2022.
