All HSA members in the field of public health are covered by one of three framework collective agreements: the collective agreement for HSA members who are nurses is negotiated between employers and the Nurses Bargaining Association, which represents nurses from the Health Sciences Association and the BC Nurses Union. The BCNU is the largest union in the NBA. At present, about 900 HSA members are covered by this agreement. The majority of nurses contribute to a defined benefit pension plan through the Healthcare Employees Pension Plan (HEPP). The services are competitive in the health market and benefit from a higher early retirement. The benefit depends on your contribution years in the plan. The majority of nurses can, through HEBP, access group living benefits which, in the event of death, offer up to 4 times their salary. There is also accidental death and dismemberment cover.
