Online re-testing survey deadline for FBA clerical workers, June 18

Printer Friendly Version

There’s only a few days left for HEU facilities clerical workers to fill out the online survey on skills re-testing. These tests may include typing/keyboarding, medical terminology, Excel, Word, or finance software programs.

The Facilities Bargaining Association will present the survey results to the Leadership Council (health authority CEOs and senior health ministry officials) as concrete data on the amount of resources and taxpayer dollars wasted to re-test workers in a time of shrinking health care budgets.

In recent years, HEU’s clerical workers have expressed concern about the unnecessary testing they endure when applying for jobs with equal qualifications or for lateral positions that they are already filling. Many also red-flagged inconsistencies in re-testing across the province as well as within health authorities.

Please take a few minutes to complete this brief online survey by June 18, 2010.
