Tentative Agreements Reached for AD, AS, CS and PG Groups
On June 3, tentative agreements were reached for the four above mentioned groups. Wage increases for these groups are based on the legislated increases as per the Expenditure Restraint Act. They are as follows:
2007/2008 – 2.3%
2008/2009 – 1.5%
2009/2010 – 1.5%
2010/2011 – 1.5%
The AD an AS Groups will get the 2008-2011 increases as they have already received an increase for 2007/2008. The CS and PG Groups will get all four increases.
There are some other proposed changes to the collective agreements. These will be explained in more detail in the ratification packages that will be sent out within several weeks.
