New CUPE Agreement Reached!

Health Unit Board Approves New Collective Agreement with CUPE Staff

December 15, Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit approved a new four-year collective agreement with its staff represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE).
The Board of Health for  Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit approved the contract at its meeting in Port Hope last week. Under the agreement, CUPE staff will receive the following salary increases:

  • January 1, 2012 – one per cent

  • January 1, 2013 – one per cent
  • July 1, 2013 – one per cent

CUPE represents approximately 90 employees who work as public health inspectors, dieticians, administrative staff, health promoters, dental hygienists and communications staff.

'We were very pleased to have reached a four year agreement with CUPE,' shared Susan Bickle, Director of Administration and Human Resources with the Health Unit. adding 'This new contract provides us with some stability for the next four years and provides our CUPE staff with an increase after seeing no salary increases in the last
negotiated contract.'

Bickle says the Health Unit has been working hard as an organization to be fiscally responsible during tight economic times and stay within the allocated funding provided by the province. As of  November 30, 2011 the Health Unit had expenditures of $15,530,762. The next Board of Health meeting is scheduled for January 19, 2012 at the Lindsay office.
