Health Sector Statues Repeal Act
The proposed Health Sector Statues Repeal Act would rescind two existing acts –Bill 29 and Bill 94, 2003, in their entirety. Repealing bills 29 and 94 will improve job security and stability by strengthening the uncertain employment conditions workers have faced for years. In doing so, government will be better able to recruit and retain the skilled health-care professionals needed to support better continuity in patient care. These statutes stripped affected employees of the workplace protections and rights available to other workers in B.C. and paved the way for years of privatization, contracting out and layoffs.
