Call for Nominations: Hospital Central Negotiating Team

April 15, 2019

The central hospital collective agreement will expire on March 31, 2020. As a result, it is time to initiate the process of electing a new Hospital Central Negotiating Team and to make the call for nominations from members in hospital bargaining units.

Accordingly, I am pleased to provide the following for your information:
-Nomination and Résumé Forms
-Mandate – Hospital Central Negotiating Team (HCNT)
-Policy #18.6 – ONA Group/Central Negotiating Teams Election Policy

A scanned copy of the completed Nomination Form and a Word copy of the Résumé Form must be received by the Office of the Chief Executive Officer/Chief Administrative Officer via email to no later than 1600h, May 10, 2019 to be validated.

The name, Local # and bargaining unit must appear on the Nomination Form. The font size and length of the Resume will be consistent, and contain no more than 1,500 words. In addition, to have a 500 word article and photograph appear in a pre-election ONA publication and on the ONA website, you must provide me with these documents no later than 1600h on May 10, 2019. Note that information provided must be in MS Word format. Please refer to the ONA Group/Central Negotiating Teams Election Policy for details on all campaign communication opportunities.

Online voting (web and/or phone based) will be used for this election. Information will be sent to all members in the hospital sector by June 3, 2019. Members will be entitled to vote for one full-time and one part-time candidate from their region, unless either or both positions have been acclaimed.

Orientation for the Hospital Central Negotiating Team is scheduled for January 20-January 24, 2020. Successful candidates are expected to attend.
