United Nurses of Alberta welcomes new members at three Alberta worksites – Carewest Sarcee in Calgary, the Allen Gray Continuing Care Centre in Edmonton, and the Covenant Care's Foyer Lacombe facility in St. Albert.
Our union will represent 35 employees at the Carewest Sarcee site, who will have their own local, UNA Local 423. UNA first met with employees there in early February and a successful certification vote took place on May 16. Negotiations for a first collective agreement will start soon.
Successful votes were held in February at Allen Gray, where the membership will be part of Local 219, and on May 9 at Foyer Lacombe, where a decision is yet to be made on the local. There will be 23 members at the Edmonton Unit and 13 at the St. Albert worksite.
