The ballot that will be provided to voters contains the following question:
In your employment relations with Blanche River Health, do you wish to be represented by:
OPSEU/SEFPO: Strength of experience. Power in numbers.
Lower dues – just 1.375 per cent.
Higher dues – plus hidden “initiation fees”
Extra professional liability coverage
You have to buy insurance out of your own pocket
The power of 25,000 health professionals in 85+ hospitals in Ontario
Fewer than 400 hospital professionals at just two Ontario hospitals
Your OPSEU/SEFPO Staff Representative is Denis Chenier.
A 25-year OPSEU/SEFPO member himself, Denis has been working as the paramedical staff rep at the Kirkland Lake hospital for the past eight years. He knows your work, he knows your employer, and he knows your community.
He can be reached directly and can be on-site within an hour – a big difference from the 1-800 number you’d have to call to leave a voicemail for your far-away LiUNA rep.
