The classification standard for each occupation indicates how the employer determines the supervisory factor rating for a given workstation and the applicable DE percentage. Table 6 shows the population of the SV group of the last five (5) exercises. During the reporting period, the FR, GS and SC groups experienced strong growth, while GL and HP populations stabilized over the same period. These are the types of changes in the population that one would expect to come from a period of restraint. It is also important to note that, although the HS group recorded a significant decrease in its population during the reporting period, this situation is due to the transfer of hospital staff from Ste-Annes to the Quebec government in 2016 and not to recruitment or engagement problems. As Table 19 shows, wage growth is for the majority of OAS groups (40.5% to 93.9%) the increase in the public sector (43.3%, measured using HRSDC Score 6) in the private sector (43.6%, as measured by HRSDC`s Score 6) and cumulative increases due to the change in the CHPI (36.8%) since 2000. This is despite the negative effects of the Spending Limitation Act in 2010-11 and the Deficit Reduction Action Plan from 2011 to 2015/16. On February 4, 2017, the parties tentatively agreed to an economic increase in the SV group of 1.25% per year over four years, which corresponded to the rest of the public administration, and salary increases to fill the gaps in the analysis of the employer`s study. The employer proposes to repeat the same improvements or equivalent improvements for members of the SV bargaining unit, which would provide for a fair and reasonable collective agreement. The evidence presented in this letter does not indicate that the SV group will obtain more than the model established in the 34 agreements reached during this round of negotiations. THE HP CLASSIFICATION standards recognize the characteristics of this group, including working conditions (environment and risk) (figure #22).
The HP Group consists of positions that are primarily active in the maintenance, repair and operation of machinery, facilities and public facilities. These include work on equipment and machinery used in wastewater treatment and sanitation, water supply and treatment, navigation and handling/storage of fuels and lubricants.
