Retroactive seniority applications reopened for nurses

In 2009, the Nurses Bargaining Association launched the Retroactive Portability of Seniority Initiative. The most common reason for denial of claims was that nurses remained casual at the first work site, making them ineligible to port their seniority. Many of these nurses remained casual on the advice of union stewards and labour relations officers.

Due to this fact, the NBA has agreed to re-open claims for nurses caught in these circumstances.

If you are a nurse who was denied retroactive seniority through this process, applications have been reopened and are now available on the HSA website. Deadline for submission of applications is March 31, 2010.
