The Nurses` Bargaining Community and the Health Employers` Association of BC (HEABC) have reached a preliminary agreement as part of the government`s negotiating mandate on sustainable services, which focuses on improving services for individuals and ensuring fair and affordable compensation. From April 1, 2018, there will be a nine-tier salary scale for nurses in BC: MoveUP represents the support staff of bc Nurses` Union. The BCNU represents approximately 26,000 nurses and allied medical care. Special Clinical Preparation – an additional $50 per month is provided to nurses working in specialized specialties that are difficult to fill (OR/PAR, ER, ICU/CCU). This incentive is proportional for part-time nurses. Nearly 155,000 public sector employees are currently subject to interim agreements or ratified as part of B.C`s sustainable services negotiating mandate. 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 preliminary agreement covers nearly 44,000 registered, psychiatric and licensed nurse practitioners working in hospitals, long-term care, community and public health, home help and mental health services across the province.
Further details of the agreement will be available following the ratification process for the nurses` association and collective bargaining unions, HEABC and their member employers.
