  • Across-the-board increases in rates of pay amounting to 8.26% over 4 years;
  • Undertaking a joint pay study comparing LP salaries with internal and external comparators which may result in further additional pay increases made retroactive to May 2018;
  • Call-back pay incorporated into the collective agreement at current rates and the 5-day cap on the ability of local managers to approve management leave has been removed;
  • Other modifications negotiated by other bargaining agents who ratified collective agreements this round; including but not limited to
  • An exceptionally long implementation period necessitated by the Phoenix pay system offset by a $400 signing bonus
