AUPE members working for Bethany Care Society have new collective agreements after seven long years of bargaining. We and the employer ratified the agreements and are in the process of scheduling retro-pay for members.

There are now two master agreements for Bethany Care Society members: one agreement for members in nursing care (NC) and another agreement for members in general support services (GSS). Additionally, these are the first agreements for members working at Riverview, Mountview Lodge, and Sundre Supportive Living. Congratulations!

The new agreements include major improvements to overtime, shift scheduling, new promotions, and transfer language, as well as retroactive wage increases.

Your negotiating teams wish to thank you for all your support and solidarity. We could not have completed this round of bargaining without you!
