(6) Where the SAHO PMSRC report recommends a market supplement, the setting of additional market wage rates between HSAS and SAHO is negotiated. If, in the course of such negotiations, the parties fail to reach an agreement within forty-five (45) working days from the date on which the Union receives the report, the matter shall be referred to the Adjutant Judge of the contract in accordance with clauses 7 and 8. In accordance with Article 9.08, if the parties fail to reach agreement on the determination of a position, the matter may be referred to arbitration or other mutually agreed decision-making proceedings. (g) temporary posts may not exceed one year, unless this is provided for in Article 1.22 or by mutual agreement between the Union and the employer. At the request of a worker, the parties may agree to amend the provisions on working time by negotiating flexible working time arrangements. Under these agreements, fluctuations in working time may occur due to staggered start or end times or changes in the time set for lunch. Employees would not work more than one hundred (112) hours over a period of three (3) weeks or eight (8) hours per day. Negotiated flexible working time agreements will continue, unless otherwise negotiated or terminated in accordance with the terms of the original agreement. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, the standard annual working time for full-time workers is 1948.8 hours and the provisions of Article 15.01 (standard working hours) and other related provisions, including Article 15.04 (overtime and bonus rates) shall apply. The parties may meet from time to time at the provincial or local level to negotiate changes in work schedules or to confirm the extension of such changes. In addition to the amendments thereto, the parties may make changes that modify certain aspects of the management of this agreement as long as no staff member is required to work more full-time hours than those provided for over a reasonable period of time not to exceed six (6) months. 1.19 “Regional Health Authority” means a regional health authority as constituted by the Province and includes, for the purposes of this Agreement, a health district or administrative authority succeeding it in the composition of the Province. (b) negotiated extended post-agreements shall continue until they are otherwise negotiated or terminated in accordance with the terms of the original agreement.
The participant is a legitimate worker whose application to participate in the plan has been approved by the employer and who has entered into an agreement with the employer. The employer shall deduct the introductory costs, predispositions and monthly contributions from the salaries of each employee covered by this Agreement. Deductions are made no later than the last payment period of each month and are transferred to the HSAS provincial office within two (2) weeks after deduction or on the 15th of the following month. If a supervisor or designated employer does not respond within the prescribed time frame, the union has the right to take the next step. The abovementioned time limits may be extended by mutual agreement. .
