Health Care Administrative Professionals Strike Vote Mobilization Update

Members of your bargaining committee and local leadership have been working diligently on phone banking, reaching out to NSGEU members in the bargaining unit to ensure we have their current contact information, they are signed members, and to answer any of their questions about the bargaining process and next steps.

To-date, those efforts have been quite successful, but we need your help: please talk to your coworkers and make sure they are receiving communications.

Here is a Frequently Asked Questions document that outlines some of the most common questions we are hearing.
