Wage Re-opener

Year 3 - The Parties shall commence negotiations to reach agreement on the wages payable in Year 3 (April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020) of the Collective Agreement on February 15, 2019.

The Parties agree that the only item open for negotiations shall be the wages in the Salary Appendix of the Collective Agreement. This re-opener shall not be construed in any way as "opening the agreement" for negotiations on any other issues by either side.

If the Parties have not been able to agree upon the wage adjustment, at any time after March 31, 2019, either Party may give written notice to the other Party of its desire to submit resolution of the wage adjustment to interest arbitration before a three-member panel comprised of a nominee of both parties and a chair chosen by the parties from among the following arbitrators: David Phillip Jones, Andrew C. L. Sims, or W. D. McFetridge.

If the parties are unable to agree upon the chair, the Director of Mediation Services shall choose the chair from among the arbitrators named above.

The arbitration hearing shall be held by no later June 30, 2019. In reaching its decision, the arbitration panel shall consider the matters identified in section 101 of the Alberta Labour Relations Code.
