Prairie Region Council November 2019
Members of PSAC 40005 (members working at Casino Regina) voted on and accepted a new contract. This agreement addresses several priority issues within the workplace as well as some financial certainty.
The new collective agreement includes a 4.5 percent salary increase over the 5 years of the contract which will expire December 31, 2021. The new agreement also provides a .05 per cent increase to the pension plan (matched by the employer), improvements to the Attendance Management system, new provisions for Religious and Cultural Traditions and Compassionate Leave and an increase for both Bereavement Leave and Family Responsibility Leave from three days to four.
I feel that given the results the other crown corporations got from 17 days on a picket line Casino Regina members made the right decision on accepting this contract. Most members can live with this agreement and some are really upset. But now is the time to prepare for the next round and mobilize members to get them ready.
No other issues were brought forward to me to report.
