Important: Update on Bill 1 Mediation and Telephone Town Halls Scheduled
What: Telephone Town Hall meeting
When: Tuesday, November 18, 7:30 p.m. (site leaders & Local executive)
Wednesday, November 19, 7:30 p.m. (all acute healthcare members)
The mediation process outlined under Bill 1 has failed. Click here to watch NSGEU President Joan Jessome explain what happened during mediation, the serious implications this will have on your rights, and our next steps.
Tonight (Tuesday, November 18), all Local executive members and site leaders are being invited to participate in a telephone town hall meeting, so we can update you on any further developments and answer your questions.
Tomorrow (Wednesday, November 19), we will hold a second telephone town hall meeting for all health care members, including Local executive and site leaders, who are affected by this legislation.
We apologize for the last-minute notice, but we were under a media blackout until 12:01 a.m. today, which meant we could not share any information with members until now.
Participating in a telephone town hall meeting is easy. We will call you between 7:30 and 7:35 p.m. Tuesday and/or Wednesday. During the meeting, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and make comments, just like on a radio call-in show. The meeting will last about an hour, but you can leave at any time simply by hanging up.
Please make every effort to participate on the call.
