Earle says the continuation of the clause helps ensure the safety of NAPE members. “If these agreements are ratified, they will save long-term while ensuring staff stability while continuing our work to return to surplus,” Finance Minister and Treasury Board Chairman Tom Osborne said in a press release. “This is a very balanced agreement.” – Tom Osborne Your support, solidarity and collective voice have made progress.

I thank the members of the negotiating teams for their hard work and commitment to their colleagues in negotiating these agreements in the face of such difficulties. “This agreement will provide the province and the public sector with much-needed stability,” NAPE President Jerry Earle said in a statement. “There are also our members and the people of the province who need essential public services that calm them down.” Since the fall, NAPE negotiating teams have entered into preliminary agreements with: Karwood Retirement Retreat, Marble Mountain Resort, City of St.

John`s (Water Treatment Facility) and Blue Sky/Caregivers/Momentum and have ratified agreements with the City of Portugal Cove – St. Philip`s, Tiffany Village/Kenny`s Pond Living Retirement, Alt Hotel and Nain Community Government. Sixteen existing collective agreements between the provincial government and the Newfoundland and Labrador Public Employees Association (NAPE) are now being extended until March 31, 2022, following a preliminary agreement between the two parties. “This agreement will provide the province and the public sector with much-needed stability,” NAPE President Jerry Earle said in a union statement. The provincial government and NAPE have tentatively agreed to a contract extension for 16,000 government employees. “The cost of living, the consumer price index, is about 2% per year. I think it would be totally unrealistic to expect a new four-zeros deal or, in this case, a two-year extension for zeroes,” Mr Osborne said. The agreement, which still needs to be ratified by more than 16,000 NAPE members across the province, extends all aspects of existing collective agreements by two years, with the exception of specific amendments. “I am very pleased that we have reached preliminary agreements with NAPE that balance the challenges we face in the economy with the need to reach an agreement that respects the significant contributions of our public service,” Finance Minister Tom Osborne said in a statement.
