LRB rules Biomedical Engineering Technologists to remain HSA members


Biomedical Engineering Technologists who maintain specialized hospital equipment at acute care hospitals across the province will continue to be represented by HSA, according to a review panel of the Labour Relations Board.

The Biomedical Engineering Technologists were designated as paramedical professionals last year, and moved into the Paramedical Professional Bargaining Association collective agreement. At that time, the Labour Relations Board ruled HSA should represent the technologists. However, that ruling was appealed by the Hospital Employees Union. In a decision issued today, a review panel of the Labour Relations Board upheld the original decision.
