United Nurses of Alberta welcomes Registered Nurses and Registered Psychatric Nurses employed by AgeCare Skypointe in northeast Calgary as the newest members of the union.
The bargaining unit of 22 Registered Nurses voted to join UNA and their application to join the union was approved by the Alberta Labour Relations Board on November 12, 2019.
As soon as possible, UNA will negotiate a first collective agreement for the new members, who before the vote worked without representation by a union. UNA members employed at AgeCare Skypointe have not yet been assigned to a UNA Local.
UNA also represents Registered Nurses and Registered Psychatric Nurses employed at AgeCare Valleyview in Medicine Hat and RNs, RPNs, Licensed Practical Nurses and other health care workers at AgeCare Beverly Midnapore in southeast Calgary.
UNA provides a wide range of services to its members. A key role 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.
