Elections: Hospital Provincial Negotiating Team (HPNT)

February 5, 2024

The cut-off date for receipt of nominations for regional full-time and part-time representatives to the Hospital Provincial Negotiating Team has now passed. There were three acclamations (Regions 2, 3 and 4) and elections are required in Regions 1, 2, 3 and 5.

There were two part-time positions (Regions 1 and 4) for which a nomination was not received prior to the deadline. In accordance with our policy, nominations will be taken from the applicable Area Coordinators Conference (ACC) and an election will be held with the voting delegates in attendance.

Any questions about the election process may be directed to the Chief Electoral Officer by email at [email protected].
