Peterborough Public Health Tuesday announced a collective agreement with its nutritionists, health promoters, infant development workers and dental hygenists.
The deal was ratified last month by OPSEU Local 327 members and recently ratified by the Board of Health.
“We are very pleased with the commitment to collaborate effectively demonstrated by OPSEU and Peterborough Public Health in this negotiation. The outcome is something we can be proud of because this agreement reflects many of the objectives both parties wanted to achieve. Our focus now is for our employees to continue delivering the great programs and services that make this community one of the best in Ontario,” said Larry Stinson, Director of Operations for Peterborough Public Health. “This agreement is a win-win, because it supports our high-quality programs and services to continue and was negotiated with fairness and equity in mind.”
The five-year contract will end March 31, 2021.
