Joint Benefits Trusts
The 2014-2019 Health Science Professionals, Community and Facilities collective agreements include a Joint Benefits Trust (JBT) for each sector/subsector. The JBT model is an innovative approach to the design and management of employee benefits programs.
In a JBT, unions and employers are equal partners in delivering health and welfare benefits. Working together, both parties are motivated to operate efficient and sustainable benefits plans that provide the best possible benefits for employees.
The three health sector JBTs formally assumed responsibility for administering employee benefits programs on April 1, 2017.
