The new agreement also provides for an amendment that will apply to all employees. Thus, the increase in discretion under Article 2 of Schedule ”G” is increased by 0.7% to 0.8%. The text of the agreement states: ”The maximum annual expenditure of 0.7% under Article 2 of Schedule G of the existing collective agreement is amended to 0.8%.” Labor Relations is responsible for negotiating and managing agreements negotiated with district unions and district representation in the event of appeal and arbitration hearings.

The salary increase included in the agreement is specifically for employees who have failed in the upper echelons of the salary band, following the CBC`s decision to increase fluctuation margins first in 2017 and then in 2018 to cover higher levels of the GSP wage structure. As of April this year, more than 160 GSP employees will receive pay increases of 2 or 3% based on the results of their performance evaluation for 2019. Employees who are above expectations in 2019 receive 3%, while those who have met expectations increase their wages by 2%. The same increases are granted twice to the same employees; april of this year (2020), then April 2021. These increases are attributed in addition to the normal performance increases, which are usually paid at the beginning of July of each year.
These are the main changes in this agreement, one of the four conditions of renewal GSP had indicated for the continuation of our current collective agreement. As we announced on Monday, the other changes will be explained in the next two days. Tomorrow, Wednesday, we will review intermediation operations for custody payments and Midpoint changes. On Thursday, we`ll explain the changes to the script editor`s status. The terms of application are currently re-elected in order to meet the obligation to make the first payments promised in the agreement. In this context, the GSP will contact the staff concerned to draw their attention to the situation. Under section 23.2, this collective agreement is extended until March 31, 2022. Here you will find the current collective agreement as well as that of previous years. The agreement ended a long battle that APS began after the CBC`s first increase in 2017.
