HSAS & SAHO Current Bargaining Updates


Jan 29

Bargaining Update #2 – January 29, 2019

In our November Bargaining update it was reported that the parties would be exchanging bargaining proposals on December 18, 2018. The exchange did take place on that date and both teams had the opportunity to ask questions and to provide additional information pertaining to their respective proposals. This allowed both the HSAS and SAHO negotiating teams to come away from the exchange with an understanding of the issues that each party would like to address in this round of bargaining. The parties agreed to meet on January 15-17, 2019 to begin the bargaining process.

Bargaining Update #1 – November 9, 2018

Our main Collective Agreement with SAHO expired at the end of March 2018 but remains in place until a new agreement is signed.

SAHO provided HSAS with a notice to bargain on January 29, 2018. Three days later it was announced that SAHO would be absorbed by the SHA and cease to exist as its own entity by the spring of 2019. This did not come as a big surprise, but it did cause some initial delays in the bargaining process.

We finally were able to secure a meeting for May 30, 2018 with the individuals who would be representing the Employer for this round of bargaining.
