Management and non-management employees who are not unionized will fall under the same four-year wage pattern, step increases and service award rules as bargaining unit employees, government announced today, May 11.
“We need to protect important public services while providing appropriate compensation to public sector employees,” said Randy Delorey, Minister of Finance and Treasury Board. “We are doing this in a manner that is fair to employees, affordable for taxpayers and consistent with the Public Services Sustainability Act.”
The four-year wage pattern for non-bargaining unit employees will not have an increase in the first two years, then one per cent in the third year, 1.5 per cent in the fourth year and 0.5 per cent on the last day of the fourth year.
Eligible non-bargaining unit employees will continue to receive step increases consistent with their bargaining unit colleagues.
The public service award, for those who are eligible, has been updated and will be based on an employee’s bi-weekly salary at the time of retirement.
This applies to:
— government departments
— government business enterprises and governmental units, including Crown corporations and agencies, the health authorities and regional school boards
— various other employers funded by departments
All administration of non-bargaining unit employees’ compensation will be in line with recent ratified and tentative agreements and is within government’s fiscal plan.
