In the midst of bargaining for Unit 1 last year, the Ford government tabled Bill 124, which among other things, imposed a 1% total compensation cap for Public Sector workers. The Bill passed first reading, but was not finalized as we were completing negotiations. As there was a possibility that either the Bill would not pass, or the provisions relating to total compensation could change, we bargained a .5% wage contingent wage increase that would come into effect in January of this year. Bill 124 did wind up passing with the 1% total compensation cap in November last year, meaning that we are still subject to the moderation period and the contingent wage increase will not come into effect. If anyone has any questions, please email Sarah-Kai Antanaitis.
