St. Boniface Maintenance & Trades Ratifies New Four-Year Agreement
Oct 16, 2014
Last night MGEU Local 94 – St. Boniface General Hospital Maintenance & Trades – members ratified a new four-year contract, covering about 60 MGEU members working in the facility.
The wage increases over four years reflects the health care funding mandate of zero percent in the first two years of the agreement, followed by 2.5 percent increases in each of the next two years (5% total increase over the duration of the agreement).
Other negotiated highlights include market wage adjustments (effective October 1, 2014 and October 1, 2015) for certain classifications, a long service step of two percent for those with at least 20 years of service, as well as increases to the boot and meal allowances.
The Local 94 bargaining committee will now
contact the employer to get the agreement finalized and signed before it’s
printed and distributed to members. In the meantime, members of the Local are
encouraged to to ensure they
receive a copy of the new contract once it is available.
