First Nations Health Authority bargaining update: Tentative agreement achieved

We are pleased to report that the PSAC BC FNHA bargaining team and the employer have reached an agreement in principle.

PSAC BC was unable to share the details until now, as the union and the employer both agreed on an embargo at the conclusion of negotiations. An embargo means we agreed not to communicate the outcome on a tentative deal to be able to retain confidentiality for a short period after negotiations.

The bargaining team will now turn it over to the members working at FNHA to let us know formally whether you will be supporting the team recommendation to accept the tentative changes to your collective agreement.

In general terms, there are no concessions, and it is a three-year agreement that would go back to the expiry of the last contract.

More information on ratification meetings and the vote process will follow.

In Solidarity,

Your Bargaining Team
