OPSEU Sector 10, representing our Hospital Professionals Division, will hold its first-ever post-bargaining Conference on December 1 and 2. The purpose of this conference is to review the recently negotiated collective agreement and more specifically discuss our commitment to educating the membership specifically around the negotiation of innovative scheduling agreements. OPSEU's central negotiating team has faced challenges from the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) in the last two rounds of bargaining. The OHA attempted to impose short shifts in both rounds.
The conference will also discuss newly-negotiated contract language and the ongoing threat of privatization of bargaining unit work.
