Nape Union Agreement

Posted on Saturday, April 10th, 2021 at 6:24 pm

The new collective agreement will take effect retroactively to June 17, 2014 and expire on June 16, 2017. According to Carol Furlong, President of NAPE, the new agreement provides for monetary increases in wages and job bonuses, improvements in family leave provisions and improvements to the language of the contract. “Home care is at a very critical time,” Earle said. “We were in conciliation. We have 27 agents to negotiate. There are 20 that we have met in conciliation. Employers simply did not take the bargaining committee seriously, so we are very concerned. We asked for a written report. … At the end of the day, we will consult with our members if we do not reach a collective agreement. They offer invaluable service, and they are primarily women – more than 95 per cent.

I think there`s a way. Behind the scenes, there were a few conversations we had. I think we can find a resolution. Jerry Earle, President of the Labrador Public and Private Workers Association (NAPE), spoke at the biennial union convention on Thursday. The two-day event will take place at the Delta Hotel in Saint John, which will be attended by hundreds of delegates. 51 collective agreements in the last two years, only one work action, workers have been blocked in the Paradise City. Earle says NAPE is willing to negotiate, fight and win. During all negotiations, Earle stated that the union wanted to avoid any union action, but added that it was the workers` right to consider this option. Over the past two years, the workers represented by NAPE have ratified 51 collective agreements. The only case where there were labour disputes at that time was when the City of Paradise released unionized employees.

The president of Newfoundland and Labrador, the largest union of public service employees, says he will not accept the status quo when it comes to the next round of negotiations with the provincial government. Earle is aware of these issues, but says there are ways the province can help forward workers in a new collective agreement. Below are links to collective agreements at Memorial.
