Healthcare Representation Votes Begin Today!


By August 8, 2019

The union representation votes begin today: vote OE987 for the best representation in healthcare!

The voting period runs from Thursday, August 8th at noon until Thursday, August 22nd at noon. A package with your voting PIN was sent to voters’ home addresses via Canada Post along with instructions on how to place votes online or by telephone.

At OE987, our representatives are full-time union employees and are trained in labour relations at a university level. They understand employment standards, duty to accommodate, and workplace safety and health. This means our representatives quickly handle grievances or issues with their expertise and can respond to an employer if they go out-of-bounds. This is why healthcare workers in Manitoba have trusted OE987 since 1950.

This vote is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to have a say in the representation in your workplace – and it only takes 5 minutes of your time. The successful union will represent you for the rest of your career; use this opportunity to let your voice be heard and vote OE987 for a strong union that cares! OE987 proudly focused our campaign on what we can offer you as a union instead of bashing others or spreading misinformation – our aim was to simply provide you the information you need to make an informed decision.
