UNA welcomes Shepherd’s Care Eden House nurses

United Nurses of Alberta extends a warm welcome to the direct nursing employees of Shepherd’s Care Eden House, who voted 100 per cent on May 19 to be represented by our union.

The eight nurses at the Edmonton facility for seniors living with chronic conditions received their certification from the Alberta Labour Relations Board on May 20.

UNA staff will submit a recommendation to the Executive Board soon with respect to the local structure for the worksite.

UNA labour relations staff representatives have served formal notice with Shepherd’s Care to begin bargaining for a first collective agreement.
