In preparation for negotiating your next Collective Agreement, a Bargaining survey will be emailed to you early next week (week of July 22, 2019).
In the past two rounds of bargaining the HSAS/SAHO Collective Agreement, the Negotiating Committee used a Bargaining eSurvey to gather member input. Survey results helped to determine priorities going forward into each round of bargaining and ensured that all members had the opportunity to provide their own perspectives. For these reasons, your Bargaining Committee will be surveying the Crestvue membership in preparation for bargaining the next HSAS/Crestvue Collective Agreement.
You can assist your Bargaining Committee in their work by completing the survey when you receive it.
The Bargaining Survey found in the link below is your opportunity as a member of HSAS to participate in your contract negotiations. The information gathered through this Survey will be used to assist your Negotiating Committee in the setting of priorities and in the development of creating bargaining proposals relevant to those priorities. You will be asked to represent the specific needs of your occupation, your satisfaction level with some of our current provisions within the Collective Agreement, as well as your general needs and priorities as a member of HSAS.
