Halifax Regional Municipality Collective Agreement

10 Apr Halifax Regional Municipality Collective Agreement

There is nothing unheard of about this treaty. I have worked for the Edmonton transit for 30 years and it is very similar to the last treaty, unless I think they negotiated the 36 months up to 30. Don`t blame the Union for fighting for each member, blame the legislation. Unions are legally obliged to fight for each member, whether they like it or not. It is perhaps more sensible to amend the legislation than to reject the whole idea of a Union. There are still guards and bosses against whom people need collective protection. The Union prevents it from flouting all members of society. If the Crown appeals a not guilty sentence, the municipality will repay. If the verdict is guilty, “the Chief of Police is considering the possibility of appealing to the member and defence counsel, and the region will bear the costs of the appeal if recommended by the Chief of Police. This increase in salaries has led in recent years to corresponding increases in the police budget – and the Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency Budget, in which salaries are tied to the police – especially since the municipality has had to pay retroactive increases in a lump sum. Similarly, when a member of the HRPA is called in a legal action, the municipality must “provide that the act, the alleged act or the inaction is within the limits of its duties”, a lawyer. In addition, a separate section of the collective agreement, section 17 at the time of the court, seems to indicate that public servants are also paid for their judgment time in these situations: the collective agreement published on Wednesday, which came into force from April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2020, was imposed by an arbitration body in 2017.

It includes approximately 500 sworn officers and more than 100 civilian officers, and has given these members annual increases of 2.75% for each of the five years. Police unions and their collective agreements have been identified as an obstacle to reform amid talks sparked in recent weeks by police violence in the United States and Canada. Collective agreements with the Minister of Labour and Training under sections 4A (12) and 46 of the Nova Scotia Trade Union Act. Section 23 of the collective agreement focuses on “protecting mutual legal assistance.” It states that the commune “must pay the legal costs incurred by a member of the defence of a criminal or judicial investigation” provided that “the member is prosecuted, summoned or is the subject of an investigation; “The action, the alleged action or the inaction was the member`s responsibility; “The elected legal adviser was chosen from a list agreed by the region and the Union.” And: “The region has the right to request a review of legal fees at the tax bar.” If the worker decides to appeal himself and if he succeeds, the municipality must reimburse his legal costs. Section 35 of the collective agreement, Confidential Employee Information, gives HRPA members the right to access their personal files. The municipality “has the right to supervise a civil proceeding and has the exclusive power to appeal a decision. A transaction is not an admission of guilt by a member.¬†For public complaints under the Police Act, the municipality pays up to $75,000 per year for legal fees. As in civil cases, the municipality has the right to settle.
