For those OPSEU members in attendance at the last General Membership Meeting on November 7, 2018, you will recall some discussion and a vote on a “renewal” collective agreement.
What does that mean? We agreed and voted to enter into bargaining in a different manner this year. The membership saw the wisdom in achieving a Collective Agreement prior to the expiry, with no real change to existing language and focusing on wages and only 3 special cases brought forward.
The team is pleased to announce we were able to achieve a new Collective Agreement with CAMH, which will expire on April 1, 2022.
The team achieved movement on all 3 special case initiatives and also was able to secure a wage increase of 1.75% in each of 3 years beginning April 1, 2019.
Ratification vote by members will take place in two locations on Thursday December 20, 2018.
Please VOTE on Thursday December 20:
Queen Street site cafeteria: 7 AM TO 7 PM
Russell Street site cafeteria: 7 AM TO 7 PM
