INNISFIL, ON - Innisfil council is expected to ratify a new threeyear collective agreement with the Innisfil Professional Fire Fighters Association (Local 3804), during a meeting later today.
The last agreement expired in December, and it took several bargaining sessions, including mediation, to reach a new draft deal with the association, says Innisfil's human resources director Michelle Collette.
"The Memorandum of Settlement was achieved on April 13, by the negotiating committee, and represents the general direction of council related to the fire negotiations," she said, in a report to council. "We are pleased to report that these negotiations produced a 'made in Innisfil' solution; the results achieved through the negotiations consisted of language improvements, benefit capping, additional clothing allowance, (and) changes in language surrounding the 'respectful workplace' regarding Bill 168. Wage and benefit increases are consistent with our municipal comparators."
