BCNU is pleased to announce a tentative three-year agreement has been reached between the Nurses' Bargaining Association (NBA) and the Health Employers Association of BC (HEABC).
The NBA bargaining team and HEABC representatives took a collaborative approach to this round of bargaining, committing to creative and innovative solutions to shared concerns that have been felt across the healthcare system.
BCNU President Christine Sorensen says nurses now have a tentative agreement that reflects an honest commitment from HEABC to address members' key priorities. "This round of bargaining has been built on a genuine commitment made by both parties to work together and think creatively about solutions to shared concerns. As a result, we have an agreement to present to our members that recognizes the value and hard work of nurses as professionals, and secures their ability to provide safe, quality patient care across the system."
Members of the bargaining committee will soon be meeting with as many members as possible through a series of face-to-face meetings to present the terms of the agreement to those members covered by the NBA collective agreement.
Ratification materials, including the proposed terms of settlement, will be posted to the BCNU Member Portal on December 6.
