Please join your Bargaining Committee at the Duke of Kent, 2315 Yonge Street on the second floor this Friday, February 12 at noon. We will be going over the Memorandum of Agreement with you and answering your questions so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not to accept the terms as your new Collective Agreement.
As you can see in the memorandum, we have bargained a 5% salary increase over four years beginning October 28, 2015 until October 27, 2019. We have also negotiated an improvement in the employer’s contribution to the Defined Contribution pension plan from 3% to 5% over three years. Other highlights are that the probation period has been shortened, holiday performance fees for TVO Kids’ Hosts have been clarified, and we have strengthened some job security provisions for contract performers.
We will once again run an electronic voting process for members beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, February 16 and ending Wednesday, February 17 at 12 noon. We will send you the details this week.
