Locations for Health Science Professionals strike vote meetings

UPDATED November 14, 2012 at  5:32 pm
HSA has been at the bargaining table for seven months working to negotiate a new collective agreement. Talks broke down October 31. After seven months, the HEABC and the government have nothing to offer: No response to a wage demand. No response to repeated requests for costing on budget saving measures, including reorganizations and wellness programs. No agreement to proposals to reduce the risks to patients and health care professionals, who currently do not have sufficient sleeping hours free from call.
Government has imposed a -cooperative gains" mandate for bargaining in the public sector. That mandate has allowed for modest wage increase in many agreements. The people who deliver the critical health care services British Columbians count on deserve to be treated fairly and equitably. Thats not whats happening. And we need your strong support for a strike vote to tell the government thats not good enough. Health science professionals deserve to be treated with fairness and respect.
