LifeLabs Medical Laboratory Services and the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union have reached a tentative collective agreement that would extend to the end of 2014.
The agreement means that all LifeLabs patient-service centres, labs, outreach service, resident homes and senior-care facilities have resumed normal hours of operations.
About 40 sites — including 11 in Greater Victoria — were closed down for two days last week as part of job action.
A press release from the union and company states the tentative agreement includes three one per cent pay hikes effective Jan. 1, July 1, and July 1, 2014.
LifeLabs provides laboratory testing services and serves four million B.C. patients each year at 80 locations. — Times Colonist
