Happy New Year everyone!

I hope 2017 brings you health, happiness and prosperity!

A quick update: just as everyone was getting ready to celebrate the holidays, on December 23, 2016 the Ontario Labour Board certified the staff of YET ANOTHER dental office for unionization.

The staff of Pathways Dental Care (Bryan Stein Dentistry Professional Corporation) in Hamilton, Ontario were certified for unionization after more than 50% of staff eligible to vote voted to unionize.

Unionization in dental offices doesn’t seem to have gained too much momentum but it is still something you should consider when thinking about your staff and HR issues.  If you’d like more information on the unionization process or what unionization would mean for your dental practice, you can read my articles: Unionization in the Dental World – What it May Mean For You and Unionization in the Dental World – Another Unionized Dental Office in Ontario.
