The collective agreement between UPSE and Health PEI expired on March 31, 2023. Negotiations with Health PEI commenced in June 2023 and have continued, with our most recent bargaining date being June 19, 2024.

The UPSE bargaining team and Health PEI (the Employer) have reached an impasse on key provisions, leading to a breakdown in discussions. The Parties attempted to reach a deal at the table, but unfortunately, there were fundamental differences.

UPSE’s position is that the Employer does not value all bargaining units the same and undervalues the daily contributions of UPSE’s dedicated members. Both UPSE and the Employer will now seek conciliation in an effort to reach a tentative agreement.

Please monitor the Union website and our social media sites for updates on the bargaining process.
