Employees without new contract for more than year: ONA
Nurses and health-care professionals who provide services at the Hamilton Program for Schizophrenia in Hamilton are going to conciliation the week of June 3 in an attempt to negotiate a new collective agreement.
The Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA) members have been working without a contract for more than a year and serve about 250 clients.
“It is our hope that this employer comes to conciliation this week prepared to reach a deal. We know and their clients know just how valuable their services are. Let’s hope this employer recognizes that as well,” said Vicki McKenna, ONA president.
ONA is the union representing more than 65,000 registered nurses and health-care professionals, as well as 18,000 nursing student affiliates, providing care in hospitals, long-term care facilities, public health, the community, clinics and industry.
