vote last week between OPSEU, CIPP and ONA.
Lois Boggs, Sector Chair for Community Health Care
Professionals, thanks all the members for their patience during this

time, and were faced with some difficult decisions. We are glad to
welcome them to our sector, and thank ONA and CIPP for their campaigns.”
We especially thank OPSEU members Louise Mulligan-Roy,
Sophie Racine-Sigman, Shelley Hickson, and Chantal Barr for their
tireless work during this campaign. We look forward to representing them
and the other 380 members of one of the largest CCAC Professional units
