New SUN Agreement Supports Nurse Practitioners

Members of SUN have voted 92.4% in favor of ratifying a two year Collective Agreement with SAHO. The collective agreement was negotiated concurrently with a new tripartite agreement between SUN, the Ministry of Health, and the Regional Health Authorities. The tripartite agreement reflects the collaborative spirit Nurse Practitioners (NP's) helped create in last year's Primary Health Care Re-design process and plan. The collective agreement supports SUN NP members by incorporating  the $6 per hour bonus into the basic wage. For more details about this and other changes supporting NP practice see http://sun-nurses.sk.ca/+pub/document/Labour/Negotiations/MoS%20and%20Partnership%20backgrounder%20FINAL.pdf

President, Rosalee Longmoore, publicly announced the results May 29, 2012. The full press release is available on SUN website at  http://sun-nurses.sk.ca/communications/media-relations.

This is another NP NOW opportunity. A big thank you to the NP's who actively advocated for these changes in the SUN collective agreement!
