The Public Sector Labour Relations Transition Act (PSLRTA) governs what happens to members, their contracts, and their unions when hospitals merge. The chosen union must bargain a new collective agreement for the new combined group.
Until that new collective agreement is bargained, everyone retains representation under their current collective agreement. OPSEU members will continue to be covered by the OPSEU agreement, former ONA members will be covered by the ONA agreement and the former non-union employees will continue under their terms and conditions.
In an effort to mislead you, ONA has distributed their version of a contract comparison hoping that voters will believe that if they vote for ONA they will automatically get certain benefits. This is simply not true.
ONA’s comparison also excludes OPSEU’s superior contract language and contains many errors.
For example, when it comes to transportation allowance, student supervision, scheduling/hours of work, extended tours, and Christmas/New Year’s provisions, ONA’s document is just flat-out wrong.
You are voting for the union to best represent you into the future; OPSEU’s got a proven track record representing the interests of allied health professionals.
