Nurses to Receive Final Wage Increase of Their Current Contract

  • Bulletin
Two percent wage lift coming to all those covered by the NBA provincial contract; LPNs now at a 9-step wage grid

​BCNU members covered by the 2019-2022 Nurses Bargaining Association (NBA) collective agreement will receive a 2% wage increase, effective the first pay period following April 1. This brings the total wage increase for members over the 3-year term of the agreement to 6%.

LPN members are now fully integrated into the NBA’s nine-step pay grid, an important milestone for the union. This integration has ensured an additional step to the LPN wage grid in each year of the contract. In 2021, LPN members at Year 9 will see an 8.3% higher wage increase compared to the highest step in the old grid.

BCNU successfully negotiated these provincial wage increases for all members covered by the 2019-2022 NBA contract. We remain committed to advocating on behalf of our members to ensure fair compensation for their invaluable contribution to health care, to hold employers financially accountable to ensure staffing levels match patient care needs and we continue to voice our concerns around the continued rise of regulatory college and insurance fees.
Members with specific questions related to their pay should contact their respective payroll departments. Any concerns may be brought to your BCNU steward for follow-up.
