MoveUP Members at ICBC Ratify New Collective Agreement
On Monday, MoveUP members at ICBC voted to ratify a new, five-year collective agreement, which will now take effect and run until June 30, 2019.
MoveUP members will receive wage increases of six per cent over five years, with potential for additional increases if the B.C. economy exceeds the annual forecasts set by the Economic Forecast Council during the last four years of the agreements.
The deal allows opportunity for MoveUP and ICBC to improve benefits for current employees as well as retirees, improvements to moving expenses eligibility for members outside the Lower Mainland, and better language around job evaluation and the Joint Occupational Health and Safety and Environment Committee. The agreement also commits ICBC to better support Claims Workload Committees and to begin a study of caseload in the claims division by July 1 of this year, with phase two of the study to start by January 2017.
MoveUP represents nearly 4,000 employees who work in various areas of ICBC’s operations, including customer claims, driver licencing and administering road tests, as well as providing vehicle licencing, road safety and general administrative support.
