We are pleased to announce that all allied health professionals at the Scarborough and Rouge Hospital will now be represented by OPSEU!

“On behalf of OPSEU’s entire Executive Board, I am delighted to welcome these 300 paramedical professionals into our family,” said OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas. “We’re confident each and every member will find a home in OPSEU as they join more than 25,000 members in our Hospital Professionals Division.”

Last month, the OLRB issued its final decision regarding the composition of the new OPSEU paramedical bargaining unit, which covers all allied health professionals including the former non-unionized staff and the paramedical staff previously represented by CUPE.

OPSEU has represented hospital professionals across Ontario for close to 50 years.

“OPSEU is undoubtedly the union of choice for Ontario’s health professionals,” said Sara Labelle, chair of OPSEU’s Hospital Professionals Division. “OPSEU has the knowledge and experience to provide the best representation and service. With OPSEU, you’ll have a strong voice in your workplace, and in the province.”
