About 4,000 members of the Yukon Workers` Union will vote this week on whether to accept a new three-year collective agreement. It provides an annual salary increase (5.25 percent, total, over the duration of the agreement, or $16.5 million) and higher work and weekend bonuses. Airport nurses and firefighters will benefit from additional market adaptation. Some $46,000 is also expected to be spent on community aid and remote bonuses. You can ask Geick (but he won`t answer, I tried) how much actually vote on this contract, I guess about 5% of the members can vote during the small window of time, given the lack of information and the requirement to be in the city. Why not send a ballot to each member and send it back? Personally, I would rather get out of the union and keep my 2k in annual fees than let these guys “collectively negotiate” on my behalf. Each contract over the past 20 years has pushed members backwards economically. I am not in favour of this proposed treaty. The three-year collective agreement, which came into force on July 15, is the culmination of nine months of negotiations, Geick said.

Another aspect of the collective agreement, which is not mentioned in the government`s press release, is a common learning program, said Geick, who needed three rounds of negotiations to establish it. The four teams representing the leadership team are on their way this week to visit each municipality and highway camp, explain the agreement and gather votes from union members. The collective agreement covers everything from the posted work bonus to maternity leave and parental leave. Steve Geick, President of the Yukon Employees Union, speaks at a press conference in Whitehorse on December 18, 2018. According to Geick, a new collective agreement between the Yukon government and the Yukon Workers` Union will allow Yukon workers to take up to 48 hours of paid leave if they experience workplace trauma. (Crystal Schick/Yukon News file) A new collective agreement signed by the territory`s government and its union includes a first for Canada, says the president of the Yukon Employees Union (YEU). The agreement, which expires on December 31, 2021, applies to approximately 4,100 workers represented by the YEU and the Public Service Alliance of Canada. “Many hours of hard work have been done by teams on both sides to secure this collective agreement.” The Yukon Employees Union receives funding from the Yukon government if they place the president and vice-president in those positions.

So the Yukon government pays for the salary of the president and the vice-president.
