Winnipeg Police Collective Agreement 2017
The union, which represents 526 civilian police employees and 1,443 uniformed officers, has been without a contract since December 23. Negotiations began in the fall, but Sabourin says the mayor sabotaged the talks. The Mayor explained that police funding has increased by 80 per cent over the past decade, «and Budget 2017 provides more funding to the Winnipeg Police Service than ever before in Winnipeg`s history.» Until the ratification of the TREATIES between CUPE and the police associations, the city still had several unions without a collective agreement. Other changes include: • New agreement introducing five additional classifications (mechanics, apprentice mechanics, shop masters, janitors and supervising guards) into the C-2 compensation scale for staff with rates of pay equivalent to those of other civilian bargaining units performing similar work, • Reduction of minimum paid overtime from one hour to three hours, paid for failure to notify cancellation after 22:00 the day before the scheduled trial date. e, • Changes to shift schedules, including the ability for the Winnipeg Police Service (SSE) to introduce staggered start times into general patrol services, thereby increasing the number of cars available for duty hours during main calls without increasing the number of police officers in the division. In addition, the current evening team in which the canine unit operates is included in the collective agreement, • the expansion of the tasks of auxiliary cadets, including the ability to deal with traffic hazards, escort duties within the police headquarters, the supervision of the security of police buildings and the ability to fill vacancies in the river patrol unit, • The promotion process for the rank of inspector will be streamlined from the police promotion plan as of June 5 Poule. 2017 and • Changes to job sharing understanding statements for police and staff to allow for cost-neutral shift changes for vacation purposes. Bowman said in a statement that he continues to support the collective bargaining process, but does not respond directly to the micromanagement charge. However, the police will receive a 2.49% pay rise this year. This increase will increase to 2.61% in 2018, then fall to 1.63% in 2019, 1.61% in 2020, then 1.59% in the last year of the contract. Civilians and cadets will assume more duties from uniformed officers under the labour agreement between Winnipeg and its police union. The contract also reduces the minimum number of hours the police pay to get to court while off duty or working overtime. WINNIPEG – The Policy Executive Committee (CEP) and Council will vote tomorrow on the ratification of the longest and most sustainable negotiated agreement in nearly 20 years between the City of Winnipeg and the Winnipeg Police Association (APE).
CUPE 500 negotiates and manages fourteen collective agreements and has approximately 5,000 members. Our bargaining units range from one member to about 5,000 in the City of Winnipeg. The police union is not alone in its labour talks. The city is negotiating with the unions representing most of its workers, and talks have yet to reach agreements. The Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 500, which represents 5,070 workers, will work with an arbitrator to reach a labour agreement. A five-year collective agreement ratified Monday by the Winnipeg Police Association calls for the civilization of the Winnipeg Police Service`s central processing and reading units where officers processed suspects or read reports. .
