July 2, 2015 OPSEU welcomes our newest Allied Health members at the Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket. On June 23, the pharmacy technicians and pharmacy assistants chose to join OPSEU in a representation vote.
Sara Labelle, chair of OPSEU’s Hospital Professionals Division, is proud to represent these new members. “More and more Allied Health Professionals are choosing OPSEU as their union because they know we will protect their interests and work hard to make improvements in their working lives. They join their colleagues, the Medical Laboratory professionals in Local 387. We have a long, winning track record with Hospital Professionals. That’s why they are the fastest-growing sector in our union.”
Warren (Smokey) Thomas, OPSEU President, says these members will benefit from union membership. “Our union represents the largest number of health professionals in the province. More and more, hospital professionals know that OPSEU is the union for changing times, and we have the experience that gets results for hospital workers.”
