More than 240 diagnostic imaging staff join union
More than 240 diagnostic imaging staff with the William Osler Health System are the newest members of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU). The workers voted to unionize on June 8.
"They're joining a large group of professionals who are already represented by OPSEU. All around them, they saw evidence of the privatization of diagnostic services. With all the uncertainties in health funding, they needed and wanted a union that was a strong and proven advocate for excellent health care services,” said Sara Labelle, chair of OPSEU's Hospital Professionals Division.
The William Osler Health System, which includes Brampton Civic Hospital and Etobicoke General Hospital, is one of the province's largest community hospital, serving a population of about 1.3 million.
