The new agreement will expire in March 2019 and contained economic increases for 2017, 2018 and 2019. They also negotiated other improvements in regard to staff training and development, paid holidays, hours of work and two days bereavement leave for relief workers who become bereaved while on a shift. Once again, congratulations to the bargaining team and the membership!
