Rn Collective Agreement Nl

The interim agreement extends the union`s current collective agreement for an additional two years and remains unchanged, with the exception of a salary increase and changes to pension benefits. Members of the Registered Nurses` Union Newfoundland-Labrador (RNU) have ratified an agreement to renew their contract with the provincial government for a further two years. The provincial government and the Registered Nurses` Union of Newfoundland and Labrador have tentatively agreed on an extension of the contract. “The extension of this agreement supports the union, employers and workers.” “The result is the best possible deal, and I think if members have the opportunity to verify the details of the agreement, they are willing to accept it.” The vote took place online from June 9 to 11. Of the 2,726 votes obtained, 85.7% voted in favour of the new agreement. The interim agreement, which has yet to be adopted by the 5,200-member union, contains a number of improvements for registered nurses, patients and the health system, including a substantive staff review in some areas that need to be done to assess the workload of registered nurses; Creating an additional 35 permanent floating positions; Extending maternity/adoption/parental leave and choosing benefits from 52 weeks to 78 weeks; and no layoffs to help the province achieve spending cuts over the life of the agreement. An interim agreement on the extension of the contract until 30 June 2022 was reached last month. At the time, UNR President Debbie Forward said the extended agreement was the “best option” for nurses in the face of the uncertainty caused by the COVID 19 pandemic. EU President Debbie Forward said she welcomed the interim agreement. In April and October 2018, the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Public and Private Employees (NAPE) ratified 16 collective agreements, while the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) ratified seven collective agreements in December 2018.

In January 2019, the government secured a ratified collective agreement with the Association of Allied Health Professionals (AAHP), while on March 4, the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers` Association (NLTA) ratified its collective agreement. In announcing an agreement, the province stated that it had achieved significant success in collective bargaining over the past 12 months and had secured 25 ratified collective agreements in addition to this interim agreement. The province`s registered nurses union reached an interim agreement in contract negotiations with the provincial government and its four regional health agencies.
