Union and hospital corp. back at the table

Union and hospital corp. back at the table The Yukon Employees Union and the territory's hospital corporation are back at the negotiating table.

The Yukon Employees Union and the territory’s hospital corporation are back at the negotiating table.

Earlier this month, union employees, including hospital lab technicians, and maintenance staff, voted to strike if necessary after contract negotiations broke down last month.

Now both sides will be meeting April 24 and 25.

The key issue remains pensions, the union has said. Employees want more of a say in how pensions are managed.

The union represents nearly 250 employees working at the Yukon’s three hospitals.

YEU president Steve Geick said he is pleased the talks are back on.

The hospital workers’ last contract expired in August.
