Meetings scheduled to hear your concerns about on call and call back

Members concerned about requirements for on call and call back work are encouraged to participate in a series of meetings in the Lower Mainland hosted by HSA over the next few weeks.
Many health science professionals have expressed concern that they have dangerously little rest between shifts because they are required to be on call and work call-backs. As part of the new collective agreement, the employer and unions have committed to a working group to review current practices and provide recommendations.
As the working group develops their report, they need to hear from members like you. If possible, please participate in one of the following on-site meetings:
Tuesday August 23
11:30 am to 1:00 pm
