2018 Negotiations

The current Local 60 Collective Agreement expired on September 30, 2017. Until a new Collective Agreement is in place, the current Collective Agreement remains in effect.

The Alberta Labour Relations Board (ALRB) has determined that Alberta Innovates would be represented by AUPE under the existing Bargaining Certificate that was issued under the Public Service Employee Relations Act (PSERA). InnoTech Alberta would be issued a separate Bargaining Certificate under the Labour Relations Code (LRC).

The reasoning for our two corporations being under different Legislation is due to the fact that when the new legislation was written to merge the four Alberta Innovates and create a new Alberta Innovates with the subsidiary company InnoTech Alberta, the wording in the Legislation on how the Board of Directors is appointed was different.

AUPE has filed a motion to the ALRB for reconsideration of their decision on the two separate bargaining certificates. That decision has yet to be issued.

In the meantime, AUPE and Alberta Innovates have entered into a Voluntary Recognition (VR) for the employees of InnoTech Alberta to be included in the terms and conditions of the collective agreement with Alberta Innovates. 

With the Local having two Bargaining Certificates we had to elect two bargaining committees; one for Alberta Innovates and one for InnoTech Alberta.

Bargaining is scheduled to commence on March 20, 2018.

Your Bargaining Committees are listed below.
