The Facilities Bargaining Association said it’s health care workers will be taking a strike vote.

The association, representing 11 unions consisting of 47,000 British Columbia health care workers will be taking a strike vote, said negotiations have stalled on issues such as employment security and the contracting out of services.

The Facilities Bargaining Association represents members who work in hospitals, care facilities and emergency health services and includes care aides, dietary staff, ambulance paramedics, emergency dispatchers, cleaning staff, records and booking clerks, diagnostic specialists and sterile supply technicians.

The Hospital Employees’ Union represents about 85 per cent of workers covered by the contract negotiations.

The current collective agreement expires on Monday.
