Some of you who work after 4:00 or maybe even 4:15 pm will have seen a clue in your workbox via email announcing that the dental plan premium is increasing. Some of you know that on December 13, 2019, HSC had also indicated that its premiums would also increase from January 30, 2020. CCMB and HSC are the only entities under phcc`s collective agreements covered by our dental plan. All other facilities use dental HEBP. CUPE 5362 had only received notification of this increase in January, after repeatedly requesting, knowing that HSC premiums were increasing. After receiving this notification, we filed a complaint arguing about this increase. For your information, CUPE 204 has also filed a complaint with HSC about its increase, so we will likely discuss it together, as we move towards a merger with Local 204. Until the abuses are resolved, we have to pay the premium increase. STATEMENT: “We will only negotiate articles of the other agreements.” This MOA was negotiated with all unions in the health sector.

The MOA ensures that members` rights are protected by any collective agreement and provides for financial compensation in the event of a temporary transfer. It is accompanied by a copy of the moa project (currently being signed). FALSE – this is false. There is not a single union that allows the government to reject what has been negotiated in the past. It would be like starting to negotiate a first treaty. It won`t happen. This is the third time that rural health authorities have held representative votes (in 2000 and again in 2012) and each time there was a collective agreement that was used to bargain. The majority of MAHCP members of the central table bargaining units who voted ratified the collective agreement.

In Manitoba, approximately 49,000 unionized health care workers work in more than 300 jobs. They are included in more than 190 collective units and are subject to the same number of separate collective agreements. 13 unions and several employers are involved in the negotiation and management of these collective agreements. The law revising the health tariff unit aims to simplify this structure. Existing collective agreements for workers continue to apply, regardless of which union wins the vote. The wage, social, seniority and other conditions provided for in their existing collective agreement also apply to workers after the vote. Important note: all members have the right to participate in the Assembly. However, to vote, you need a signed membership card.

If you are not sure if you have one in the file or need one, please contact: or call 1.800.315.3331 The majority of the members of the bargaining units at the central table who voted have ratified the collective agreement. The following collective agreement units have new collective agreements from April 1, 2010 to March 31, 2014. This is absolutely not allowed and it is a serious violation of our collective agreement. If you find that there are MNU, MAHCP or Out of Scope people performing the work of jobs within our CUPE scope, please report it. . . .
