HSA welcomes new members at Whistler Health Centre


Medical Laboratory technologists at (PHSA) Whistler Health Care Centre joined HSA on February 27.

The employees approached HSA about becoming members of the union and the decision to join was unanimous. This new chapter is a first – no other employees of Whistler Health Care Centre are unionized.

"The Whistler Health Care Centre laboratory has evolved over the last 25 years from a tiny lab within a tiny organization to a small lab within a massive organization," said Gail Macdonald, one of the new members. "We felt lost and that we needed to join HSA to have the same voice as all of our colleagues in other sites. We are excited to be represented by HSA!"

The new chapter, with five members, will be included in Region 6. The members will join the Health Science Professional collective agreement.
