A collective agreement is a written and binding contract between the Union and the employer, which sets out the terms of employment. The Manitoba Nurses Union seeks to continually improve working conditions, wages and benefits through the negotiation of new collective agreements. Nurses also benefited from a jointly funded COLA fund for all health care workers covered by the Health Workers` Pension Plan (HEPP). Contributions to the COLA Fund will begin in 2014 and COLA will be paid in 2018. Some services that UNM members receive are not covered by the collective agreement, but are provided through pension boards and fiduciary benefits: the majority of nurses contribute to a defined benefit pension plan through the Health Workers` Retirement Plan (HEPP). Benefits are competitive in the health market and benefit from a higher early retirement regime. The benefit depends on your contribution years in the plan. This manual is only available to members.

The majority of nurses are eligible for group living benefits at Den Ceraus through HEBP, which covers up to four times their salary in the event of death. There are also accidental deaths and reports of dismemberment. Wage scales for all occupational classifications are increased by an additional 5% (unassembled) to reflect the higher cost of living in the North. The above amounts are recorded on a pro-rata basis on the basis of all normal working hours in the previous twelve-month period [October 1 of the previous year until September 30 of the current year].
. Below are some scenarios to show how a change in classification affects nurses who receive the long stage of service. For example, an LPN may change RN classifications; or a nurse II, III, IV or V could receive transport to a higher classification. (In all cases, „20 years of service“ refers to the definition given in section 2105.) Here is a summary of salaries and benefits under the central table agreement that EU members ratified on 30 April 2014. It covers the majority of the members of the Union. The employer covers the cost of covering an annual salary. You can choose to add up to 3 x salary as coverage, at your own expense.
