The GFT and GMHA Collective Bargaining negotiation teams completed their initial review and discussion in all sections of the agreement. Some areas of discussion included seniority, standby/on call duty, floating to other units, in-service training, holiday scheduling, leave, disciplinary notices and nursing assessments. Both teams are working diligently to establish better working conditions and quality patient care.

GFT representatives will be available to meet at the GFT office on Tuesday, November 26, 2019 at 10:00am or 4:00pm with GMHA nurses who would like to go over the collective bargaining agreement. Nurses can also contact the office at 735-4390 or email to provide any input on the negotiations. The current GFT – GMHA Collective Bargaining Agreement may be viewed here.
