“I applaud AHS and HSAA for securing a new agreement for the 28,000 health care experts who work in 240 disciplines in communities, hospitals and clinics throughout the province.

“HSAA members – which include respiratory therapists, lab workers, paramedics, mental health professionals and others – continue to play important roles in the health care system and in the lives of Albertans.

“This new collective bargaining agreement provides fair compensation to these skilled and dedicated medical professionals and ensures long-term stability in our health care system.”
