A full copy of the 2014-2019 collective agreement is available here: The new contract is valid from April 1, 2014 until March 31, 2019. Among the spikes are modest wage increases of 5.5% over five years, as well as the possibility of paying an ”economic stability dividend” when the province`s real gross domestic product exceeds annual forecasts. This reflects increases negotiated in other public sector agreements since 2014. Other features of the interim agreement are the agreement on a framework to combat workplace violence and mental health and safety at work. The collective agreement of HSA nurses is negotiated between employers and the nursing bargaining association representing nurses belonging to the Health Sciences Association and the BC Nurses Union. The BCNU is the largest union in the NBA. Currently, approximately 900 HSA members are covered by this agreement. The PRF is used to document a concern related to professional standards. All issues related to professional standards and practices are adapted to the DEF process. Practical conditions, workload, patient safety and nurse safety refer to professional standards.

The BC Labour Relations Board decided that workers and patients were being put at risk by dangerous tactics applied by BC Nurses` Union (BCNU) organizers in December. The organizers of the BCNU tried to convince registered psychiatric nurses to leave their union, health Sciences Association of BC. ”When the HSA worked with the Ministry of Health earlier this month to bring unions and employers together in the health sector, the goal was to prevent the risk of violence for health professionals and their patients. Honestly, it`s hard to understand how another union is now responsible for increasing the potential for damage instead of working with the rest of us to address the problems,” Avery said.
