The ADF is scheduled to begin negotiations with its members` employer next week in Edmonton for the next provincial collective agreement. «Even with these decisions, fiscal discipline and discipline must be pursued when we begin new collective bargaining in 2020.» However, the union also stated that it also indicated that it wanted to «emphasize again that I have rejected any proposal that employers are not able to raise wages. The question is not whether the state government could (or should) raise taxes to raise public sector wages. I also recognize the public interest in maintaining quality public institutions. However, the decision to balance these two objectives is political, it is the responsibility of the government and not the function of an interest arbitration procedure. The nomination form requires the name of the name, the local and current address, and the names of two nominees. Relevant services may include candidate participation at the local, regional and provincial levels, leadership in influencing AAU growth through political development, decision-making, public awareness and membership building through tutoring and political development. The provincial government had entered into arbitration proceedings and had asked the ADF to claim a 3 per cent pay cut. The ATA was asked to accept a 2% pay cut. The complaint alleges that an employer-negotiator stated that the AHS committee had received instructions from the provincial chief to negotiate, Kevin Davediuk, who acted for the Minister not to share the negotiating committee`s mandate with the ADF. The AFA stated that in its judgment, arbitrator David Jones stated that «no changes in wage rates are warranted in the third year of the current collective agreement, particularly given the general economic conditions prevailing in the province, as well as the current comparative continuity and stability of employment of nurses and the absence of other relevant public institutions that would show either an increase or decrease in wages.» For ATA members, the decision means that there will be no increase in teachers` salaries until the duration of the central agreement (September 1, 2018 to August 31, 2020). «Wage correction over time is an essential part of our government`s commitment to getting our housekeeping in order.
Even with these decisions, fiscal discipline and discipline must be pursued when we begin new collective bargaining in 2020. Also an injunction ordering the employer to meet and make every reasonable effort to enter into a collective agreement.
