HSA promotes professions in province-wide ad campaign

Last week, HSA launched a series of radio ads designed to promote the work of our diverse professions.

The series of five ads, broadcasting on radio stations across the province for the next six weeks, demonstrate how our many professions connect to each other, and how we connect the public to modern health care.

RPNs share their stories in new HSA video

Last month over 50 RPNs from around BC came together for the RPN Summit on Workplace Violence at the HSA Head Office.
 
Today, we’re releasing a video featuring HSA RPN members as they share their experiences with violence in the workplace.

HSA conducting member survey

HSA has contracted with Viewpoints Research to conduct a survey to find out more about how HSA members feel about how their union responds to concerns and communicates important information.

A representative sample of members across the province will be selected randomly and contacted by telephone. Your feedback is important. Note that this is one of many opportunities allowing members to share their thoughts about our strategic plan for the next few years.

More opportunities to join a labour election canvass

The Canadian Labour Congress and local labour councils around the province are organizing more opportunities for union members to canvass for federal election candidates.  This is a great way to get involved in the election.  Join members from other unions for a few hours to talk with people in your community, and help elect the candidate labour is supporting in your area.

36 billion and 12 reasons to vote for change

HSA REPORT MAGAZINE, OCTOBER 2015

1. WE NEED A GOVERNMENT THAT CARES ABOUT PUBLIC HEALTH CARE

A $36 BILLION CUT TO HEALTH CARE

In 2014, the Health Accord, an agreement between the federal government and the provinces that ensures equal access, proper funding, and high standards for health care in Canada, expired. The provinces are asking for a new Accord, but the federal government has refused to strike a new deal. Instead, the Harper Conservatives plan to cut $36 billion in health care funding after the election.

Every. Single. Vote. Matters.

HSA REPORT MAGAZINE, OCTOBER 2015

BY VAL AVERY
PRESIDENT, HSA

HSA is a non-partisan union, but that doesn't mean we don't speak up on the issues that matter to our members.

On October 19, Canadians have a chance to make a choice that will decide the future of our country for the next four years, and far beyond that. HSA doesn’t promote specific political parties or candidates, but our members count on their union to defend their interests, and there is plenty at stake in this election.

How to vote

HSA REPORT MAGAZINE, OCTOBER 2015

iT'S NOT AS EASY AS BEFORE, SO LISTEN UP

The Conservative government of Stephen Harper has changed Canada's election rules, making it much harder for all citizens to vote in their elections, and preventing Elections Canada from raising awareness about the new rules for voting.

Please take a few minutes to make your plan.
