The Manitoba Nurses Union is very pleased to welcome 35 new members at Calvary Place personal care home.

Known as Local 162, these new members are joining us following a Manitoba Labour Board sanctioned certification vote, which was done via E-voting over 48 hours starting on Friday, December 9, and ending Sunday, December 11, at noon.

Chief among the reasons that the nurses at Calvary Place voted overwhelmingly to join MNU was the desire to be part of Central Table, which is defined as the group of Employers represented by the Provincial Health Labour Relations Services (also known as PHLRS) during bargaining with the Manitoba Nurses Union.

As stated on its website, Calvary Place provides many services, from nursing, medical, spiritual and recreation to the daily activities of life such as dietary, housekeeping and laundry, under a resident-centered care model 24 hours a day.

MNU looks forward to representing our new members at Calvary Place, and we thank everyone who organized and took part in this vote.
