  • across-the-board wage increases of 1.4% (2018), 1.75% (2019), 1.75% (2020), and 1.75% (2021), followed by a match to the OPSEU central hospital deal in 2022;

  • stronger right to representation language.

“Thank you to elected bargaining team members Monica Murphy and Sherrie Fournier at Waypoint and AMAPCEO staff member Gary Perlmutter for their efforts in reaching a deal so quickly,” said President Dave Bulmer. “This five-year deal is a fair one for the hard-working staff at Waypoint, who help plan and provide for excellent mental health care.”
