City Of Medicine Hat Cupe Agreement

Unionized municipal employees voted on a new contract proposal late Thursday, although details of the deal or the outcome of the vote are not likely to be known until Monday. A surprising union contract contract that includes a two-year wage freeze could set the standard in difficult financial times, city councillors said Monday night. In the meantime four of the five collective agreements of the city with the total staff of 1,100 persons expired. The city`s agreement with the International Association of Fire Fighters, Local No. 263, ended in late 2018. It was the first to be concluded in a round of negotiations with all unions, during which the city sought wage stoppages for the year 2017. The collective agreement between CUPE Local 46 and the City of Medicine Hat runs from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2022. “This is an important step on the part of the union and the city to move this forward and settle in a very difficult environment,” Coun said. Robert Dumanowski, who filed the application. The three-year contract with a wage freeze in 2017 – an important point in the city`s budget – then increased 2 percent over the next two years. It replaces the previous agreement, which expired at the end of 2019 and also provided for a wage freeze in the first year of 2017, before increasing in subsequent years. The town hall`s collective agreement with the Medicine Hat Police Association expires at the end of 2020.

The negotiations lasted more than two years before the pages embarked on a pay change of zero percent in 2017, but nearly 8 percent of cumulative increases over the past three years. These contracts involved a wage freeze for 2017, a strategy released a year earlier in the “Financially Fit” budget plan by the directors. There has been no direct message on wage controls in the current municipal budget, but the plan still calls for controlling inflationary and wage pressures, while staggered tax increases reverse a revenue shortfall due to lower gas prices. The contract, which has about 700 external, foreign and transit workers, is the largest in the city and the first agreement reached in a new general round of negotiations. Contracts with line workers, power plant staff and firefighters are coming to an end, with the pact with the Medicine Hat Police Association expiring at the end of 2020. Mayor Ted Clugston said the agreement between the city and the union was reached quickly. “We have a contract that will help us maintain the tax policy,” he said, adding that the agreement sets a standard that the city should maintain in discussions with other unions. MEDICINE HAT – The union representing hundreds of municipal employees and the Medical City have ratified a new collective agreement.

The collective agreement would replace a contract expiring at the end of 2019 and would settle the terms of most of the city`s unionized workforce. ” (The salary component) is applicable over time and shows the good faith and good relations that the city (direction) has with CUPE. About 700 employees are affected by the new agreement.
