Charlene Johnson, minister of finance and president of Treasury Board, said, since 2013, the province has reached collective agreements with unions and associations representing more than 22,000 public employees.
The tentative agreement shares the same framework as that reached with other NAPE groups, the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Association of Allied Health Professionals. It includes a five per cent salary increase over the term of the agreement, with zero per cent salary increase in the first and second years of the agreement, two per cent in the third year and three per cent in the fourth year. In addition, employees will receive a one-time pro-rated payment of $1,400.
