HEU members new payraise just took affect - Brace yourself It's a Doozy

38 posts in this topic

I know people who are HEU members and told me their big, fat, whooping pay increase which the Liberals and right-wingers would have you believe, worked out to a whoopy .22 cents hour increase.

The other day when Dix was campaigning and pledging money for Health Care, Clark made some reference about a blank cheque for union bosses. Seemed like she was referring to HEU.

Is it 22 cents/hour across the board or is that the average based on years of service?

Dootzy? Whoopy? Whooping? Took Affect?

No link? No Source?

22 cents doesn't sound like much, Hospital Employees work hard and are often overworked, not sure what the problem is.

edit: do you think it should be more? or is it too much? At any rate a very weak thread.

Do we want to get into this "pay" vs "benefits" thing again?

While there is little pay increases for union members, the benefits they get is out of whack with the private sector.

Where should we start, the medical, the dental plans. How about the defined pension plan the taxpayers will be on the hook for?

How about the $2 million Vancovuer teachers get for "free" massages?

It's not alleged. Fact.

Someone showed me their recent paystub and it's 22 cents.

With a 100% guaranteed win for the NDP, union members no longer need to worry about any measly wage. I am sure they will get what they want very soon,

Press Release when the contract was ratified.

I bolded the part when it says the pay increase is across the board. 3% increase over 2 years. 1.5% each year. Of course, they don't disclose it's .22 cents an hour.

Two-year contract ratified for health care workers in the facilities subsector

Newsletter

December 21, 2012

Health care workers have voted 91 per cent in favour of a two-year contract that provides job security protections, a general wage increase, and maintains benefits.

Facilities Bargaining Association (FBA) spokesperson Bonnie Pearson, who is also the secretary-business manager of the Hospital Employees’ Union, says members have approved a contract that brings security and stability to their workplaces.

Pearson says the newly ratified collective agreement achieved key bargaining priorities, which meet the needs of a very diverse membership.

Highlights include: across-the-board wage increases totaling three per cent, the continuation of health plan benefits, and a moratorium on layoffs due to contracting out for the life of the contract.

The agreement was reached on November 23 after nine months of challenging negotiations with the Health Employers Association of BC. Ratification votes were held across the province over the past three weeks.

“This was a particularly difficult round of negotiations due to government’s restrictive bargaining framework,” says Pearson. “We are especially pleased to have negotiated a moratorium on layoffs due to contracting out, which provides an important measure of job security for health care workers and by extension greater stability for the health care system.”

The collective agreement, set to expire March 31, 2014, covers more than 46,000 health care workers in publicly funded hospitals, long-term care facilities, emergency health services, health authority corporate offices and warehouses, and in other health settings across B.C.

Facilities subsector members work in such areas as: nursing; pharmacy; sterile processing; diagnostic testing; logistics and supplies; cleaning and dietary; patient records; trades and maintenance; accounting; information systems, and others.

Eleven unions are represented by the multi-union FBA, including HEU – which represents 70 per cent of the workers covered by the contract – B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, the BC Nurses’ Union, CUPE Local 873, the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 882/882H, and six other unions.

Obviously, you didn't read my last post. They obviously don't disclose and make public the actual payraise amount. 1.5% increase doesn't amount to much. If you think i'm lieing, then go ahead and think that.
