Sometimes it is easier to understand the language of the collective agreement with an example. Suppose there is a physiotherapist named Samantha who works close to home and doesn`t need her vehicle to go to work. Their employer instructs them to use their vehicles to visit patients in the community. Under this section, their employer would be required to pay the difference between their business insurance and their personal insurance. The employer would also have to pay 52 cents per kilometre for each trip with a minimum of USD 2 for each round trip. The health researchers` collective agreement is negotiated between employers and the Health Science Professionals Bargaining Association (HSPBA). It has more than 16,000 members of the HSA as well as members of the Employees Union Hospital (HEU), the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), the Professional Association of Employees (PEA) and the BC Government Employees Union (BCGEU). On October 29, 2019, an agreement was reached on the details of the HSPBA pay rates negotiated for the 2019-2022 Health Researchers Collective Agreement. You can find the final salary schedules here. Please note that there are several professional schedules and you must refer to the salary schedule that corresponds to your profession.
Members and directors should be aware that this proposed collective agreement may contain errors and omissions that will be corrected in the coming months when the agreement is concluded and printed. Once the printed version is completed, employers are responsible for distributing the registers to employees covered by the HSPBA. There are three main sections of the collective agreement that deal with transportation costs. They are all found in section 26. Explain it. Alice, a full-time pharmacist, loses her mother. Alice has to go to the UK for the funeral. Under the collective agreement, she is entitled to 30 hours of compassionate leave and 22.5 hours for travel for compassionate vacations. In total, Alice can take seven (7) days of work to lament the loss of her mother. AEP members – physiotherapists, pharmacists, psychologists and health engineers – represent a small portion of some 10,000 professionals. The date of the general meeting is set by the Board of Directors.
The general meeting can be arranged by teleconference or videoconference.
