Last week, the MGEU informed health care aides (HCAs) that the union and the Provincial Health Labour Relations Secretariat (PHLRS) had agreed to a temporary agreement to support members who have been disrupted by a staffing shortage. The agreement was put in place to allow time to negotiate revisions to the COVID Redeployment Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signed off last Spring.
