«As demand for CLBC services has increased, the demands for our front-line members who support clients have also increased,» said Stephanie Smith, President of BCGEU. «I am pleased that we have found common ground with the employer and reached an agreement that balances clients` needs for access to care with the need for a fair workload and compensation for our members.» The three-year collective agreement provides for an annual wage increase of two per cent for the duration of the collective agreement and a one-time payment related to savings related to the abolition of MSP premiums by the province. Nearly 600 members of the B.C government and the services union working for the Provincial Crown Agency, adults with disabilities and services voted in favour of a new collective agreement. Community Living BC and staff represented by the BC Government and Service Employees` Union (BCGEU) have ratified a new agreement as part of the government`s negotiating mandate for sustainable services from the B.C. Some 230,000 public servants are currently subject to interim or ratified agreements under the mandate. One of the key themes for the union was the need for an «intelligible» collective agreement. According to the union, the previous agreement was an unstepive merger of three agreements reached in 2005, when CLBC`s work was withdrawn from the direct government. The agreement focuses on improving services for people and ensuring fair and affordable compensation. The BCGEU represents approximately 560 people who help provide assistance and services to adult recipients with disabilities and their families. As a result, the latest contract contained repetitive articles and outdated terminology that made it difficult for workers to use it, Fox-McGuire said.
