Bargaining Updates for HDGH and WRH

The OPSEU 101 Negotiating Teams for both Hotel Dieu Grace Healthcare and Windsor Regional Hospital have been working diligently to bargain  new collective agreements. The Teams have provided the following updates. 


Hotel Dieu Grace Healthcare

The Union and the Employer have settled numerous issues but there are a few outstanding issues that are at an impasse.

The Team has had two meetings with a Conciliator and are now preparing for and proceeding to Arbitration. 




Windsor Regional Hospital

The Negotiating Team has had several days of bargaining with the Employer.  Good progress is being made in building our new collective agreement.  The Team has met with a Conciliator and the Employer twice in April.

The next meeting is scheduled for June 17th. (A conciliation date was scheduled in May but the Employer cancelled.)

The Conciliator is a necessary part of negotiations in the event that the process needs to proceed to  arbitration.
