Labour Relations & Negotiations
Labour relations and negotiations are important parts of ONA’s role as your representative. As members, your contract defines the parameters of your work. As your union, it’s our job to negotiate the best contracts possible. We continuously strive to improve and enhance your work life.
There are 139 hospital bargaining units that participate in central bargaining with the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA). There are 11 non-participating hospitals: Homewood, Lakeridge Allied, Shouldice, Weenybayko Area Health Authority, Chapleau Clerical Unit, McCall Centre for Continuing Care, PMH Radiation Therapists, London Health Sciences Allied, London Health Sciences Educators, Trillium Health Partners and Halton Healthcare. Members in this sector have the right to binding arbitration under the Hospital Labour Disputes Arbitration Act (HLDAA) if they reach an impasse in bargaining.
Hospital Bargaining Begins
ONA’s Hospital Central Negotiating Team (HCNT) has begun bargaining with the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) for a new collective agreement – and we are determined it will respect the work you do for the patients of this province.
The current Hospital Central Agreement expires on March 31, 2014. Download the French version of the agreement here.
