Survey on precarious work in the community social services sector

Are you affected by precarious work – employment that is insecure, unprotected, lacking in regular work and/or benefits, and that cannot support a family?
 
Your union – Health Sciences Association of BC (HSA) -- , the Community Social Services Bargaining Association (CSSBA), and the Community Social Services Employers’ Association (CSSEA) are working together to study the extent of precarious work in your sector.
 

Important member survey on upcoming contract negotiations

HSA has contracted with Viewpoints Research to conduct a survey to find out more about member priorities related to contract negotiations, workload, member communications and other current issues.

The survey will be conducted on line. Members will receive email invitations starting October 2, and the survey will be open until October 28. It takes 8-12 minutes to complete.

Your participation is important. Survey results help HSA with strategic planning on immediate and long-term needs.

Celebrate Labour Day around the province!

Unions and the labour movement are a huge force for positive change for union members, workers and society as a whole.  We owe everything from safe worksites, paid vacations, pensions, universal health care and much more to our unions.

Come out and celebrate everything we have achieved, and that we continue to work for, together in the labour movement.  Solidarity forever!
