CUPE’s Health Care Presidents’ Council has launched a survey canvassing CUPE health members about their main priorities for the upcoming round of bargaining. The survey, for CUPE members working under Community Health Bargaining Association (CBA) and Health Science Professionals Bargaining Association (HSPBA) contracts, will remain open until September 24th.

This survey is the best way to canvass our members on what they really want to see in their respective collective agreements. The survey results will help us set priorities for the next round of contract negotiations and will form the groundwork for discussions at our upcoming bargaining conference.

Responses to the survey, which should take approximately fifteen minutes to complete, are confidential. The link to this survey will be emailed to members in a separate email from us. If you or your colleagues did not receive the email that includes the link please send a request for the survey link to from your personal email (we do not use the employer’s email for union business).

As well as discussing the survey results, delegates to the October 6th bargaining conference will select the bargaining committees for CBA and HSPBA contract talks. The current collective agreements expire on March 31, 2022.

The Health Care Presidents Council is made up of representatives from the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority (CUPE 15), Vancouver Island Health Authority (CUPE 1978), Fraser Health Authority (CUPE 4816), Canadian Mental Health (CUPE 3403-01), and PHS Community Services Society (CUPE 1004).
