BC Strike Vote HSA

Canadian Press

Job action could be looming in the health care sector after members of the Health Sciences Association voted 90 per cent in favour of a strike. 

Association president Reid Johnson says his members are seeking a fair and reasonable wage increase and refuses to respond to requests for costing on budget-saving measures. 

Seventeen-thousand H-S-A members have been without a contract since March.
The union represents a wide range of professionals -- from lab techs to physiotherapists, social workers, dieticians, pharmacists, music therapists, child care consultants and special needs preschool teachers.
