Health science professionals

The collective agreement for health science professionals is negotiated between employers and the Health Science Professionals Bargaining Association (HSPBA). It covers more than 16,000 members of HSA along with members of the Hospital Employees Union (HEU), the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), the Professional Employees Association (PEA) and the BC Government Employees Union (BCGEU).


The below April 2019 wage schedules are posted without prejudice or precedent and errors and ommissions excepted.  You will note they are in DRAFT format.  The finalized wage schedules will not be posted until such time as the parties have completed the outstanding pieces of the HSP Memorandum of Agreement re: HSPBA Classification Redesign – Interim Agreement.  In the interim, please feel free to use these DRAFT wage schedules to check that your employer has properly implemented the April 2019 General Wage increase for you.

Members of the HSPBA voted in early 2019 to ratify the proposed changes to the collective agreement. A summary of the agreement, and detailed language changes are available here.  They should be read in tandem with the 2014-2019 HSPBA collective agreement below until such time as a 2019-2022 HSPBA collective agremeent is finalized in publishable format, these are the resources members and stewards should rely on.


Except where specifically noted, the contract took effect April 1, 2014 and expired March 31, 2019.
