tPSA Rejected...Negotiations Still Pending - As of Sept.1 - Just last month, the OMA announced that the members voted 63.1% AGAINST the tentative Physician Services Agreement (tPSA). Of those who attended in person and voted via proxy, there was a 55% participation rate amongst OMA members in total. This result came after the OMA held a General Meeting of Members on Sunday (Aug.14) in Toronto. The third-party scrutineer and tabulator, Computershare, facilitated the vote along with ballot verification and tabulation. The OMA has accepted the final membership vote as binding and has since met with the board and its newly formed Strategic Working Group (SWG). Subsequently, the OMA wrote a letter to the Ministry of Health requesting to meet with Minister Eric Hoskins and Premier Kathleen Wynne to discuss binding arbitration and future negotiations. Minister Hoskins responded with conditions of its own. See NEWS for more links.
