Workplace Revitalization Project/Flexible Part-Time Conversion
FPT contract approved by MAG court
November 5, 2007 The results are in and Flexible Part
Time (FPT) workers have approved, by a large margin, improvements to the FPT
provisions of the collective agreement at the Ministry of the Attorney
Following 10 days of ratification voting the agreement was
approved by more than 80 per cent of FPTs across the province. More than 70
per cent of eligible voters took part in the ratification process.
The agreement followed a lengthy survey process earlier this
year when court workers were asked to recommend changes to the current FPT
provisions. Those recommendations were incorporated into the demands OPSEU
negotiated at the table.
The improvements include changes to the annual hours
category, overtime payment, holiday pay and the ability to opt in, or out,
“It’s been a complicated process but I think FPTs across
Ontario can all take credit for participating in a process that improves
their working conditions,” said Julie Weber, chair of the MAG MERC team.
“We wish to thank everyone for their patience and support
throughout the process.”
