Joint Job Evaluation

During 1998-99 health sector collective bargaining, unions and employers agreed to a binding job evaluation process to eliminate inequity and gender bias in jobs across the health sector. SEIU-West, CUPE, SGEU, and the employer group SAHO undertook to develop and implement a sustainable joint job evaluation (JJE) plan using the principles of Equal Pay for Work of Equal Value and Pay Equity.

The JJE plan determines the minimum qualifications and evaluates the skill, effort, responsibility and working conditions for each of the more than 300 health provider jobs covered by SEIU-West's, CUPE's, and SGEU's collective agreements with SAHO.   

Each year, the JJE Maintenance Committee (JJEMC) endeavours to conduct a Provincial Review of 20-25% of all jobs. A Provincial Review is an opportunity for employees and the Out-of-Scope Supervisor to put forward information on whether and how the Job Description has changed since it was implemented or last reviewed. 

Check below: if your job is under review by the JJEMC, and you believe that the duties of your job have changed, this is your opportunity to put this information forward to be considered in the updates for the Provincial Job Description. Click on the links below for further information and the required forms. Note the deadline date. 

For any JJE-related questions, please contact the Member Resource Centre (MRC) 1-888-999-7348 ext. 2298 or use our contact us form.

On February 13, 2020 the JJEMC launched a Provincial Review of the following Provincial Job Descriptions (PJD). The reviews were put on hold when the COVID-19 pandemic was declared, but have now been resumed. Note the new deadlines in RED below.
