If you're an HEU member who took part in the Enhanced Disability Management Program (EDMP) between April 2019 and March 2020, you may be receiving a survey by email this week. Members have been chosen randomly, and will be invited to provide feedback about their experiences.
If you receive the survey, we encourage you to take part in this evaluation to help manage and improve the program.
Your responses will be kept anonymous.
The survey will also gather feedback from healthcare workers in other unions, managers, employers and EDMP stewards and representatives.
The EDMP is designed to help employees when they are absent from work, or struggling at work due to an occupational or non-occupational illness or injury. It focuses on quick and safe recovery with a proactive and customized disability management program that helps employees to either stay at work or successfully return to work.
The program was jointly negotiated and developed between the Facilities Bargaining Association and the Health Employers Association of BC, and is part of the Facilities and Community collective agreements.
