The province has reached a tentative agreement with the Association of Management, Administrative and Professional Crown Employees of Ontario (AMAPCEO) to extend the current collective agreement.
The two parties recently entered into discussions that were collaborative, productive and demonstrated a commitment by both parties to strengthening employee relations. As a result of these discussions, a tentative four-year extension agreement with AMAPCEO has been reached.
Over the next several weeks, the government and AMAPCEO will be undergoing their separate ratification processes with respect to the tentative extension agreement. It would be inappropriate for the government to talk publicly about the details of the tentative extension agreement while the association is discussing the agreement internally with its membership and executive.
Supporting positive labour relations in Ontario’s public service is part of the government’s plan to create jobs, grow the economy and help people in their everyday lives.
- AMAPCEO is the second-largest bargaining agent in the Ontario Public Service, representing approximately 12,000 employees.
- The current AMAPCEO Collective Agreement expires on March 31, 2018.
- The Treasury Board Secretariat is responsible for collective bargaining with all Ontario Public Service bargaining agents.
“I am pleased that the province has reached a tentative extension agreement with AMAPCEO. This tentative agreement, if ratified, will help maintain a stable, flexible and high-performing public service workforce that will enable to government to deliver on its transformational priorities while keeping public services affordable.” — Liz Sandals, President of the Treasury Board
