Arbitration Award at Roberta Place
Local 304 members employed at Roberta Place in Barrie received an arbitration award on February 13, 2018, for the term of December 16, 2016, to December 15, 2019.
The ability to bank lieu days as well as increasing the drop shift arrangements were changes the staff really wanted and the union was able to achieve. Improvements to benefits including life insurance and weekend premiums were well-received.
A wage adjustment of 1 percent for PSWs and a 0.35 cents per hour special adjustment for RPNs was a particularly significant outcome of the award.
