BCGEU president Stephanie Smith delivered a presentation to the Provincial Health Services Authority's (PHSA) board of directors this morning.
President Smith read anonymous stories to the board from members at Forensics that described the increasingly dangerous working conditions at the facility, including one member's quote: "each day I wonder, will this be the day I get hurt at work?"
As part of the process of finding solutions to the ongoing violence, Smith to called on the PHSA to take urgent action, as well as longer-term measures.
She urged PHSA to commit to working more closely with the BCGEU and its members at FPH, but also called on PHSA to take immediate steps to create a safer facility for staff and patients alike.
We will continue to keep you updated as we await PHSA's response to these calls for action.
