AFM members accept new five-year contract
Mar 21, 2016MGEU members that work at Addictions Foundation of Manitoba (AFM - MGEU Component 16) have ratified a new five-year contract today.
AFM members, who provide a wide range of addiction support services to thousands of Manitobans throughout the province, have been in bargaining since 2014. After a long and challenging round of negotiations, they reached a tentative agreement in February.
Their new contract (effective March 30, 2014 - March 23, 2019) includes general wage increases in each year, improvements to the health spending account, the introduction of a direct-pay prescription drug plan, and employment security provisions for the life of the agreement.
Now that the contract is ratified, the AFM Bargaining Committee will be meeting with their employer to finalize and then sign the agreement for printing and distribution to members.
