Patient Transport Services, Local 451, Ratifies First Collective Agreement
Jul 15, 2020
Members of Patient Transport Services, MGEU Local 451 – who provide non-emergency patient transport services across Manitoba – ratified their very first MGEU collective agreement last night.
The new three-year deal was just over a year in the making, with the Local 451 Bargaining Committee requesting the assistance of a third-party conciliator and filing at the Manitoba Labour Board to help reach their first contract. The agreement includes wage increases as well as improvements to sick leave and vacation provisions for about 80 members.
The next step for the Local 451 Bargaining Committee is to
get the new agreement finalized, signed by both parties, and printed. All
members of the Local are encouraged to update their
contact information, in order to receive a copy once it’s available.
Congratulations Local 451 members!
