The bargaining committee representing provincial New Democrat constituency assistants has reached a tentative collective agreement with their employers. Ratifications meetings have been scheduled for next week. We don't yet know what's in that agreement. Although we're told how much provincial Liberal constituency assistants have been making became a subject of discussion outside those labour negotiations. This, after Kash Heed's aide Keith Frew disclosed in a statement of claim filed against the former solicitor general his annual salary was $60,000. By comparison, the maximum salary for New Democrat constituency assistants is $44,980.74 per year. The following is a complete copy of the notice for those meetings.
