20 Dic Wfps Collective Agreement
«I want to thank the negotiating committees for their cooperation and agreement,» said Mayor Brian Bowman. «I am pleased that a negotiated solution is subject to the approval of the Executive Committee and the Council, which not only reflects the essential services that the men and women of the UFFW provide to all of us, but is also significantly more in line with the forecasts of cost of living increases over the life of the agreement. The agreement between the city and UFFW Local 867 is valid for a four-year period, from December 2016 to December 2020, and includes wage adjustments of 1.8% at the end of 2017, with 2% in 2018, 2019 and 2020. «It is true that the city paid 100% of my salary.

The UFFW President stated that two clauses of the collective agreement, which are on pages 54 and 55 of the document, allowed Brennan to redirect Forrest`s salary from the union to taxpayers. «The City of Winnipeg paid 100% of the UFFW President`s firefighters` salary between 1997 and 2014, in accordance with the terms of the collective agreements,» a spokesperson said in an email to CBC.
