Collective Agreement Distribution
We have just received the printed version of the new collective agreement between APS and the CBC covering the working conditions of our bargaining unit until March 31, 2020. In fact the duration could be prolonged for an extra two years if the two parties agree to extend the period.
The agreement was officially signed on November 21, 2016, following a massive vote of approval from the participating members of the union of more than 85% thus endorsing the recommendation from the APS Executive Committee. In technical terms, this means that the new contract is effective as of July 1, 2016, which is the first day following the expiration of the previous agreement that ended on June 30, 2016.
Distribution to the Members
APS is continuing its long-standing tradition to supply each of its members a personalized copy of the agreement. In this regard, the different APS Officers will be distributing the new collective agreements during the next few days. Each of the copies bears the name of the member it is intended for. If you are not contacted, consult the list of your local representative on the website (click on Contact) to find out how to obtain your copy of the agreement. Presently all copies are in the hands of the Local to which you belong.
For those wishing to inquire about becoming participating members of APS, the distribution of the agreement is an excellent opportunity to find out about the meaning of the status. A member in good standing also provides the opportunity to meet the people you work within a context of shared common interests.
