Winnipeg Police Collective Agreement

“In my opinion, the City has breached its obligations under the pension plan agreement and the recognition clause in Article I of the agreement. Under the agreement, the association was denied the right to negotiate an extremely important benefit, their pension, for its members,” Werier wrote in his decision. Civilians and cadets will assume more duties from uniformed officers under the labour agreement between Winnipeg and its police union. The contract also allows police auxiliary cadets to perform more tasks than uniformed officers. Cadets will be able to participate in traffic hazards, escort suspects to police headquarters, conduct building surveillance at headquarters and fill vacancies in the police`s river patrol unit, according to the report. However, the police will receive a 2.49% pay rise this year. This increase will increase to 2.61% in 2018, then fall to 1.63% in 2019, 1.61% in 2020, then 1.59% in the last year of the contract. “Most importantly, we expect you to come to the conclusion that the city itself knows it shouldn`t be here,” LaBossiere told Werier. “That this is a political movement in which members of the Police Association, the Association of Senior Officers, are used as pawns. The current list of officers is more than 1,400, meaning the city will pay more than $560,000 in additional penalties for what umpire Michael Werier said, taking into account the “stress placed on police officers considering their retirement options.” A five-year collective agreement ratified Monday by the Winnipeg Police Association calls for the civilization of the Winnipeg Police Service`s central processing and reading units where officers processed suspects or read reports. A decision by a provincial arbitrator sided with the union representing Winnipeg`s police officers, leaving the city with a significant penalty and a gaping hole in its financial plans. “Once the pandemic threat is over, we look forward to engaging constructively with the city and working as part of our established collective bargaining process so that both parties can deliver to the people of Winnipeg,” the EPA said in its statement.
