Health science professionals bargaining association name change
An application by HSA to change the name of the bargaining association covering health science professionals has been approved by the Labour Relations Board.
Effective immediately, the bargaining association will be known as the Health Science Professionals Bargaining Association â€” a name that better reflects the work of the professionals covered by the contract. It was previously known as the Paramedical Professional Bargaining Association.
The change comes after months of lobbying by HSA activists and will help increase the profile of this essential part of the health care team.
The Health Science Professionals Bargaining Association includes the Health Sciences Association of BC, BC Government and Service Employees Union, Professional Employees Association, Canadian Union of Public Employees, and Hospital Employees Union.
