Re: LPN Information Update

I would like to begin by thanking all the LPNs who took time out of their busy schedules to attend our information sessions last week. It was fantastic to see so many participants, and I hope we can continue this momentum going forward.

Last week, we promised to circulate an update as soon as we had confirmed numbers to share with you all. As of this morning, CUPE has officially signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Newfoundland and Labrador government that will address some of the wage concerns of LPNs and their impact on recruitment and retention in the process.

The agreement includes:

  • $2.48-$3.11/hour fixed adjustment (depending on classification) in addition to current Collective Agreement wage increases.
  • Up to a 5% increase for LPNs with 15-25 years of service in Newfoundland and Labrador as an LPN.

Further information about how this will break down between classifications will be provided during information sessions this week. If you have time, please consider attending on September 20th at 3:00 p.m. or September 21st at 7:30 p.m for more information. Registration is required.

Thank you for all your patience and support during this process. I hope to see you at the sessions this week!

In solidarity,

Sherry Hillier
