The Labour Relations Board (Nova Scotia) wishes to announce two matters of general policy following its study of its guidelines for hospital bargaining units of October 29, 1973.
- The Board has considered the guidelines for dealing with Hospital Bargaining Units issued by it on October 29, 1973, and has decided not to alter them.
- The Board, in determining who are regular part-time employees to be included in a hospital bargaining unit, shall have regard to the special skills required, the shift requirements, the regularity of shifts worked and the hours worked during a significant test period. If the hours worked average two shifts or more per week during the test period, the Board will normally include such employees in the unit.
