Health science professionals resume bargaining as membership survey on government’s proposal continues

Mediator Vince Ready facilitated resumption of discussions between the Health Science Professionals Bargaining Association (HSPBA) and Health Employers Association of BC (HEABC) last week.

CUPE bargaining committee member, Chris Losito, said the two days of discussion last week were productive.

“We stepped away from negotiations last December to take time to hear from our members so they could give input to the Health Science Professionals Bargaining Committee on the direction they wanted to go. We are currently in the process of surveying members through an online poll that gives them an opportunity to provide their feedback on the government’s offer,” Losito said.

CUPE National Representative Justin Schmid said the response to the survey has been good.

“We remain committed to hearing from members and ensuring they are well represented at the bargaining table. This survey gives CUPE members an opportunity to consider the elements of the government’s proposal, and to provide feedback that will help the bargaining committee work towards achieving a collective agreement that reflects the value of health science professionals on the health care team,” he said. 

Talks are continuing this week with Mediator Ready’s assistance.

The survey remains open until Friday, February 1.
