HSA to enter negotiations with Fraser Health Authority on displacements related to budget cuts authority-wide
Following this afternoons budget cut announcement by Fraser Health Authority, HSA began to receive reports from members and stewards that local managers were attempting to engage individual departments and members in discussions to make staffing cut decisions in certain departments.
HSA has advised Fraser Health Authority to halt the meetings, and to instead meet with the union to engage in an acceptable labour relations process to negotiate authority-wide labour adjustment strategies.
An initial meeting has been set for Friday morning, and HSA has offered to meet throughout the weekend to address staffing issues related to the program and budget cuts.
HSA members are advised not to enter into discussions on staff cuts on a local level.
If you are approached, contact your chief steward or the HSA office.
