Newsletter LPN 2018

Newsletter # 1 – March 2018







During the last round of negotiations, NBCHU CUPE Local 1252 and the Government of New Brunswick bargaining teams agreed that the Joint Maintenance Committee (JMC) will conduct a complete and thorough review of Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) jobs during the term of the collective agreement.

What HAS Been Done to date

On January 23, 2018, CUPE Hospital Local 1252 organized an education day with a Joint Job Evaluation (JJE) specialist from CUPE National. LPNs from all sites reviewed the job evaluation process and Job Analysis Questionnaire (JAQ). LPNs in attendance are considered the Champions in your facilities and their role is to support and guide you through the process.

Participating in the review

Your participation is important. Each LPN will have the opportunity to provide information about their job by completing a JAQ with a group of fellow employees who do the same or similar job, or by completing a JAQ on their own.

Copies of the JAQ are available on Skyline, Boulevard and the NBCHU CUPE Local 1252 website.

Please use your own words when completing the JAQ and provide clear and concise statements. The collection of accurate, complete and up-to-date information is essential to, and forms the basis of, the job evaluation process.

The JAQ must be completed and date stamped by Human Resources no later than April 2, 2018. The employee, or group representative, is then responsible for forwarding the JAQ to his or her respective manager/supervisor for review and comments.

The completed JAQ must be submitted to Human Resources by April 30, 2018. Once tracked, all requests are to be sent to the JMC care of Treasury Board.

Next Steps

The JMC will review all submissions received in accordance with Article 40.04 of the collective agreement. Results will be communicated once the JMC has completed the evaluation process.
