Edmonton Public Library Contractual Unit Ratification Vote

Civic Service Union 52 held an Information Meeting on January 18, 2015 and a ratification vote on Sunday and Monday January 18 and 19, 2015 on the proposed 2014 – 2018 Collective Agreement.

The vote was in favour of acceptance. The contract has been ratified.

The Edmonton Public Library Board has also ratified the contract.

The Edmonton Public Library has advised that the 2014 retroactive pay will be processed in pay period 6 for payment on March 31, 2015. Retroactive pay on the new 2015 rates will be processed in pay period 7 for payment on April 14, 2015. The delay is due to the City of Edmonton accounting and payroll departments working through their year-end processes.

Past employees need to apply for their retro pay. A link to the Request for Retro Pay Form can be found below. If you are in contact with any former employees who left the employ of the Edmonton Public Library after December 28, 2013, please ask them to check our website for information on applying for their retro pay. Past employees must apply for retro by February 18, 2015.

Current employees and retired employees will automatically receive their retro pay and do not need to apply.

The Memorandum of Agreement and a Summary of Changes can be found at the links below. We will post the new Collective Agreement as soon as it is finalized. Any questions regarding the new contract can be directed to the Union office.
