Coffee Talk – Health Transformation Tuesdays
Bill 74 Integration Decisions and Transfer Orders – Upheaval or Rationalization in the Labour Market?

The Connecting Care Act, 2019 will consolidate 20 existing health care agencies into one “Super Agency”. In addition, the restructuring powers contained in the Connecting Care Act, 2019 cover hundreds of thousands of employees of over 1,800 health service providers such as hospitals, long term care, home and community care providers, nurse practitioner led clinics and family health teams. Unions are already mobilizing to challenge what they predict will be “upheaval in the labour market”, including possible loss of bargaining rights and transfer of employment to the private, for-profit sector. As part of our Health Transformation Tuesdays webinar series, we are pleased to present “The Connecting Care Act, 2019 – Upheaval or Rationalization in the Labour Market?“, by Seann McAleese.

The session will cover:

  • What is meant by “human resource implications” of a proposed integration?
  • When does an integration trigger the Public Sector Labour Relations Transition Act, 1997
  • How will conflicting bargaining rights be resolved upon integration?
  • Opting out of PSLRTA  with multi-party consent
  • PLSRTA exemptions for entities not providing health services or predominantly engaged in healthcare

This program is eligible for up to 1.0 Substantive Hour of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits with the Law Society of Ontario (LSO). Note: Participants intending to claim LSO CPD credits are required to register individually and participate in the live webinar.
