Upse Health Collective Agreement Pei

As of today, and with respect to the announcement by PEI`s Chief Public Health Office (see announcement), UPSE is abandoning its educational institutions to minimize the risk associated with COVID-19. UPSE keeps all the names already offered for the courses in a list and contacts members when new dates are rescheduled. In the meantime, UPSE must remain proactive and ensure that the health and safety of members is a top priority. UPSE and Tremploy signed a new three-year collective agreement with a 100% ratification vote to support the new treaty. UpSE President Karen Jackson thanked the negotiating team for their commitment and hard work in negotiating a package of fair wages and benefits for membership. UPSE has purchased a limited number of masks for our members. Members can pick them up through their local manager at a location and time to be announced on a First Come/First Serve basis. Stay on the date and on time. If you have not completed your membership card, please contact the office at 902-892-5335 or e-mail peiupse@peiupse.ca. The masks are not available in the UPSE office. In all honesty, members cannot remove masks for other members due to the limited offer.

Negotiations between PEI UPSE and the Department of Health and Welfare began in April 2009 and were transferred to conciliation in March 2010, following the lack of agreement between the negotiating teams. Conciliation did not bring the parties together and monetary issues were an important stumbling block. Subsequently, PEI UPSE and the Department of Health and Welfare introduced a mandatory interest rate arbitrage procedure on 21 September, 22 September and 1 October 2010. First of all, I would like to thank all our key collaborators who provide the valuable services that islanders need in this developing crisis and for the safety of the islanders. I know that many of you have worked tirelessly in recent days to ensure that the people of the island continue to receive much-needed services and to find new initiatives on the initiatives announced by the government to reduce the economic burdens on the people of the island. As members, you provide important services to islanders, and those who protect the safety and health of islanders and deliver government programs are of the utmost importance in this time of crisis. (more) Presidential elections are about to be elected. In June 2011, the union appealed for the appointment. Please stay there! In addition, members were invited to submit tenders to the union for grass cutting services…

(more) PEI UPSE discussed openly and openly with the government the province`s persistent fiscal challenges and the need to reduce spending to reduce the deficit. At the meeting, the union presented a series of cost-cutting proposals for the government`s review and stressed that reducing services was not a viable option.
