We hope you are enjoying your summer and that you were able to take the vacation you were hoping for. We understand the realities of our workplaces right now, so we know many of you didn’t and we hope you reached out to your regional offices or the reps in your facilities for assistance where it was needed.
Your Bargaining Committee wanted to reach out to you to let know about some happenings in the last little while.
You are likely all aware of the AIMS implementation struggles over the last several years. It is a work in progress and appears to be slated for implementation on September 25, 2022.
You should also be aware that CUPE and the SHA recently negotiated a one-year collective agreement extension which included many provisions set to become implemented on October 23, 2022. These include CUPE-wide seniority, bidding rights and postings. This language was duly negotiated, agreed upon and ratified.
