Yukon union, hospital corporation dispute implications of new lab contract (St. Paul's Hospital)
The Yukon Employees’ Union is concerned about what it says is a plan to close the microbiology lab at Whitehorse General Hospital in favour of sending samples to a Vancouver hospital.
The Yukon Hospital Corporation, however, says the lab is not closing.
On Feb. 1, the YEU and the Public Service Alliance of Canada North issued a joint press release saying a contract would be in place between WGH and St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver by April 1.
