It provides an annual salary increase (5.25 percent, total, over the duration of the agreement, or $16.5 million) and higher work and weekend bonuses. Airport nurses and firefighters will benefit from additional market adaptation. Some $46,000 is also expected to be spent on community aid and remote bonuses. The three-year contract has an expiry date of December 31, 2021. Another aspect of the collective agreement, which is not mentioned in the government`s press release, is a common learning program, said Geick, who needed three rounds of negotiations to establish it. The agreement provides for wage increases totalling 5.25 per cent over three years, including some retroactive pay, as well as salary category increases, weekend bonuses and bonuses for hours worked between 4 .m and 8 .m. Steve Geick, President of the Yukon Workers` Union, will speak at a press conference in Whitehorse on December 18, 2018.

(Crystal Schick/Yukon News file) The Yukon government and its union have ratified a new collective agreement in force starting Monday. The three-year collective agreement, which came into force on July 15, is the culmination of nine months of negotiations, Geick said. The agreement, which expires on December 31, 2021, applies to approximately 4,100 workers represented by the YEU and the Public Service Alliance of Canada. The staff covered by the agreement, approximately 4,100 in total, are represented by the Public Utilities Alliance of Canada and the YEU. The agreement also allows “a worker who experiences a traumatic incident in the context of work to obtain leave without loss of pay for the remainder of the planned working day,” says a press release from the territory`s government. A new collective agreement signed by the territory`s government and its union includes a first for Canada, says the president of the Yukon Employees Union (YEU). The Yukon Teachers` Association bargaining committee convened its first meeting on December 6, 2017 to negotiate a new collective agreement. A year later, just before the hour, the YTA government and the Yukon government tentatively agreed to amend and renew the collective agreement. As with other unions, Geick said the results of the votes will not be published, in addition to the fact that voting members voted in favour of the agreement. “We have achieved most of our priorities,” including maintaining severance pay, Steve Geick, president of the Yukon Workers` Union (YEU), said Monday afternoon in a whitehorse telephone interview.
