Negotiations Updates

Hotel Dieu Grace Healthcare



HDGH and OPSEU Local 101 went to arbitration on June 8/16  and both parties made their submissions to the Arbitration Board.

The Arbitration Board consists of Arbitrator Stephen Raymond, Union Nominee, Larry Robbins and the Employer Nominee, Patricia Balfour. 

The Arbitration Board met on September 28/16.  We will now await Arbitrator Stephen Raymond’s binding decision.  Once he makes his decision, it will be reviewed by the Nominees in order for them to submit their comments before the decision is released publicly.

On October 4&5/16 The OPSEU Local 101 (WRH) negotiating team met with OPSEU Research officer Marc Casey.
