OPSEU local 464 represents over 2000 Allied Health Professionals of The Ottawa Hospital. Our members work in over seventy professional occupations. We are one of the largest locals in the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) and have a growing membership.
The local’s primary responsibility is to negotiate a collective agreement on behalf of our members and to oversee all disputes arising from the administration of the collective agreement between members and the hospital. We have an extensive team of Labour Relations Specialists available to us through OPSEU’s Head Office and numerous volunteers from the various professional occupations who work with the members to deal with any issues and disputes.
Unions are run by member for members. The Local Executive Committee (LEC) is the governing body for the local, and is comprised of stewards from various areas who run for executive office. The LEC meets monthly and dates are posted on our website. General Membership Meetings are held twice a year.
