The union has revised the process of membership recruitment for HEU representatives, administrative assistants, IT and maintenance staff. In order to address the recruitment needs of the union in a more timely way, the new process eliminates the restriction of an annual posting. HEU will now post job opportunities for members on an “as needed” basis.
We anticipate that job opportunities will be posted more frequently with this process. The postings for job opportunities for members will continue to be distributed through the Action Agenda. The postings will also be posted on our website under “Hot Picks”. This process will replace the Annual Work Opportunity.
Please contact our Human Resources Coordinator Vicki Shillington at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Job Opportunities for Members
Enhanced Disability Management Program (EDMP) Steward
The union recognizes that early intervention can contribute to successful long-term recovery and management of illness and injury. To this end, HEU, Health Authorities, Providence Health Care and Affiliate employers have negotiated an Enhanced Disability Management Program (EDMP) for the Facilities Subsector.
The goal of EDMP is to ensure that members who are injured or ill can access supports that assist them in managing their injury or illness in a timely way and/or return to work with appropriate supports and accommodation.
HEU is recruiting members to act as EDMP stewards. Those stewards will focus on advocating for HEU members and helping them navigate through the program and receive the greatest benefit from it.
We are looking for HEU EDMP stewards from the Facilities Subsector who hold a permanent position in the workplace with a Health Authority, Providence Health Care, or an Affiliate employer (covered by the Health Services & Support Facilities Subsector Collective Agreement).
