MAHCP represents Laboratory, Radiology and Cardiology at the Brandon Clinic. On Thursday August 23 the members voted down the employer’s last offer and were poised to go on strike Tuesday August 28th at 08:30.
Their agreement expired on July 31, 2006.
The bargaining unit’s main goal for this round of bargaining was to achieve parity in wages with the rest of the province.
In the 11th hour the negotiating team and Brandon Clinic were able to reach a tentative agreement which consisted of an additional 2% for all members.
Tuesday Evening August 28th, the membership voted in favour of ratification. The clinic had always maintained a 92.5% differential between our members there and the rest of the Province, through this round of bargaining we were able to narrow that gap. Additionally the clinic will now match the member RSP contributions and a fifth week of holidays was negotiated in the 25th year. The group is satisfied with the outcome.
