CUPE Supports Elected Health Authorities

The Canadian Union of Public Employees coming out in favour of having at least half the members of the Regional Health Authorities elected instead of appointed.

The President of the New Brunswick Council of Hospital Unions Norma Robinson says that will prevent any cronyism but she questions the wording the legislation which states the C-E-O of the Health Authority will report directly to the Health Minister.

 She fears the will of the board members could be bypassed if the C-E-O makes an end run directly to the Minister.
