After negotiations between the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) and Grand River Hospital, a new collective agreement has been reached that will benefit unionized employees at the hospital. The agreement covers a wide range of topics that are important to employees, including wages, benefits, and working conditions.

One of the most significant changes in the agreement is an increase in wages for all unionized employees at Grand River Hospital.

This is a significant increase, and it represents a significant investment in the hospital`s employees.

In addition to the wage increase, the new agreement also includes changes to benefits and working conditions. For example, the agreement includes a new vision care benefit that will cover the cost of eye exams and eyeglasses for employees and their families. This is an important benefit that will help employees maintain their eye health and save money on expensive eye care.

The new agreement also includes provisions for better scheduling for employees that will make it easier for them to balance their work and personal lives. The agreement includes a new scheduling system that will allow employees to choose their shifts based on their availability and preferences. This will provide more flexibility for employees and create a better work-life balance.

Finally, the agreement includes a new mental health support program for employees. This program will provide resources and support for employees who are struggling with mental health issues. This is an important step toward creating a healthier, happier workplace for all employees.

Overall, the new OPSEU collective agreement at Grand River Hospital is a significant step forward for the hospital`s employees. The agreement includes a range of important benefits and changes that will improve the lives of all unionized employees at the hospital.
