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 32 bargaining units in this sub-sector, 31 are nursing and one is allied. The majority of the members are Public Health Nurses (PHNs) and Registered Nurses. Members in this sector have the right to strike if they reach an impasse in bargaining and their employers have the right to lock them out.
