BC government mandate

The BC government has developed a three-year fixed "2019 Sustainable Services Negotiating Mandate," which applies to all public sector employers with unionized employees whose collective agreements expire on or after December 31, 2018.

The Sustainable Services Negotiating Mandate is about improving the delivery of services for people in BC and balancing the need for fair and reasonable wage increases with outcomes that are affordable and managed within the fiscal plan.

The mandate is designed to support government’s core priorities, and enhance and modernize the delivery of services that British Columbians rely on. It ensures the fiscal sustainability of the province while providing fair compensation.
