Bargaining continues for Health Science Professionals contract

The Health Science Professionals Bargaining Association continues to meet with the Health Employers Association of BC to negotiate a new collective agreement.

Two weeks ago, the union association served notice to the employer that a concessionary package is completely unacceptable to health science professionals.

In the ensuing two weeks, discussions have continued. The unions are optimistic that HEABC and the government have received the message that the contribution of health science professionals delivering modern health care in the public health care system must not be discounted.

Talks have been slow, but the bargaining association is satisfied that there is forward momentum in negotiations.

Bargaining continues next week.

The Health Science Professionals Bargaining Association represents 17,000 health science professionals working in BC hospitals and communities. They are members of Health Sciences Association, BC Government and Service Employees Union, Canadian Union of Public Employees, and Professional Employees Association.
