In the wake of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice finding that Bill 124 was unconstitutional, the APUO reached an agreement

with the Employer to secure retroactive salary increases for the period spanning May 1, 2021 to April 30, 2024.

The Employer has 120 days to implement the retroactive salary adjustments, meaning all adjustments should be completed by February 28, 2024.
