  • updated special leave language to clarify how credits are earned

  • job postings will now include more detailed information

  • maternity, parental, and adoption leaves have been renewed in accordance with current legislation

  • seniority will accrue when nurses are working in temporary assignments and during some unpaid leaves of absence

  • annual wage increases including retroactive pay are:

    • April 1, 2017: 1.50%

    • April 1, 2018: 1.70%
