Nape Collective Bargaining Agreement
Jerry Earle is now approaching the next round of collective bargaining in the public sector, saying the NAPE is preparing not to accept the status quo of the minority Liberal government. pic.twitter.com/cfKctZ5AjL Earle is aware of these issues, but says there are ways the province can help forward workers in a new collective agreement. A collective agreement with prison officers expires next Thursday, with most of the union`s agreements with the government expiring on March 31, 2020. Earle said 15 negotiating teams would work in the coming months. In all negotiations, Earle stated that the union wanted to avoid 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. “During this round of negotiations, we made a significant contribution to this province in the last round of negotiations,” Earle said in an interview with reporters after delivering a keynote address thursday morning. “We didn`t create the problem. … Every Newfoundlander and Labradorian has seen the cost of living rise, as have our members working in the public sector.
What is our message – and we cannot predict what will happen in collective bargaining – is the status quo that we will not accept. Below are links to collective agreements at Memorial.

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. “I welcome this government for opening this line of communication, especially in the last two years,” he said. “We had productive discussions. We told them where we were. We are ready to go to the negotiating table. In recent years, the provincial government has faced fiscal challenges largely related to lower oil prices and rising costs of service delivery, particularly in the health sector. The province is working with deficit budgets and its net debt is increasing. In recent times, pay cuts have been a common feature of NAPE-government agreements. 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. pic.twitter.com/A2wVzfMToh note: All the pdfs at the bottom left are PDFs and open in a new window.
