Edmonton (15 July 2009) - DynaLIFE lab employees, who are members of the Health Sciences Association of Alberta (HSAA/NUPGE), have overwhelmingly rejected their employer's "final" offer.
The offer was rejected by 86 per cent of a significant amount of DynaLIFE employees who voted on the proposal through a mail-in ballot held over the past week. The ballot count was held at HSAA headquarters in Edmonton.
HSAA has since extended an invitation to the employer to return the bargaining table for one last attempt to reach an equitable collective agreement for its more than 900 employees.
The employer and HSAA have agreed to return to the bargaining table on July 20th.
