CBA members to receive maximum wage increase this year

Inflation-protection measures negotiated in new agreement will trigger 6.75% increase

New inflation figures released yesterday confirm that the maximum wage protections in the CBA collective agreement will be triggered, and members will receive the full 6.75% wage increase starting April 1, 2023.

This brings the total general wage increases for the first two years of the agreement to well over 10% for most members, on top of 1.5% low wage redress, and the elimination of step 1 on the wage grid.

HSA’s bargaining committee is working with HEABC to make sure that members receive both the 2022 and 2023 wage increases as soon as possible, and we will keep you updated when we have more information.

Our current collective agreement – ratified March 1 – also includes wage protections for the April 1, 2024 wage increases. We expect to have approximations of the April 1, 2024 increase around this time next year. You can find more information about the wage protections and other changes in our collective agreement on our CBA ratification page
