Nurses and Government agree on a Go Forward Basis
Whew, that was close. Well congratulations to union president Debbie Forward and Government reps for a last minute tentative agreement to avert a nursing strike. No one wanted that, no one really wins. At a time when health care in this province has been crippled and doubted, there is an immediate sigh of relief, but also more hope to at the very least stop the outmigration of nurses, but to perhaps have more enticing reasons for nurses to migrate here to fill some of the 1000+ vacancies. It's been a long time coming.
