United Nurses of Alberta welcomes Registered Nurses employed at the Chinook Care Centre in southwest Calgary as the newest members of the union. The more than 30 Registered Nurses employed by Intercare Corporate Group Inc. are now members of the newly created Local 425.
UNA members employed at Carewest Glenmore Park, who voted to join the union in August 2019, are now members of the newly created Local 424.
The UNA Executive Board recently voted to make administrative changes by merging a number of already existing locals north of Edmonton.
- Members and duespayers of Local 16 at the Boyle Health Centre are now represented by Local 135, which already represents members at the Athabasca Health Centre.
- Members and duespayers of Local 187 at the Radway Health Centre are now members of Local 128, which already represents members at the Redwater Health Centre/Sturgeon Country Community.
These changes are administrative and will not impact the wide range of services and representation that UNA provides to its members at these worksites.
A key role of the union is negotiating the excellent collective agreements that regulate salaries, benefits, schedules and working conditions of members. UNA also administers its agreements to resolve disputes, improve working conditions and protect nurses’ workplace rights.
Members who have any questions about the changes can contact their local executive or UNA Labour Relations Officer at 1-800-252-9394.
