Crown Attorneys Ratify Agreement

The agreement between the province and the association representing the province’s Crown attorneys was ratified on Saturday, Jan. 9.

“I am pleased the Crown attorneys have accepted the agreement,” said Premier Stephen McNeil. “This four-year agreement is a fair deal and stays within our fiscal plan. I continue to urge other unions to come to the table.”

The new contract includes an agreement on wages with no increase in the first two years, a 1 per cent increase on April 1, 2017, a 1.5 per cent increase on April 1, 2018 and a .5 per cent increase on March 31, 2019.

The Years of Service credit for the service award is frozen effective April 1, 2015. The amount of the award is based on salary at retirement.

Negotiations began on Sept. 24, 2015 and the parties met for two days. The Crown attorneys voted 82 per cent in favour of the new contract.

The last agreement expired on March 31, 2015. The new agreement expires on March 31, 2019, and covers about 85 Crown attorneys.
