During 1998-99 health sector collective bargaining, unions and employers agreed to a binding job evaluation process to eliminate inequity and gender bias in jobs across the health sector. It was the beginning of a process that would lead to the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement between CUPE, SEIU, SGEU and SAHO in September 2003. Since this time, the process has evolved and continues to be the standard by which jobs within the health sector are evaluated to this day.
In 1998-99, unions and employers agreed to a province-wide job evaluation process that would remove inequity and gender bias in jobs across the health sector.
Since that time, there have been notable steps taken in this direction to ensure equality amongst all employees working within the health sector.
There are three phases in which job number occur. These include:
- Job #1 to Job #275: Evaluation Phase
- Job #300 to Job #354: Reconsideration Phase
- Job #400 to Job # : Maintenance Phase
