LOCAL 049 Capital Care - General Support Services (GSS)
Constructive conversations on violence in the workplace
Your negotiating team met with the employer last week and were able to sign off on some minor articles.
The two sides agreed that printed copies of the collective agreement will continue to be made available to members. For new hires, it was also agreed to add up to 60 hours of paid time for orientation during the probation period.
There were constructive conversations about violence in the workplace, an issue that members have said is important.
There were no further discussions on the monetary rollbacks the employer is seeking, which include four years of zero wage increases; cuts to overtime pay and shift differentials; and the loss of some leaves of absence (LOAs).
For more on that, please look at the last bargaining update from February.
Negotiating is scheduled to resume on Oct. 19 and 20.
If you have questions, please contact a member of your negotiating team.
