Earlier today, we sent a letter to the CEO of the Nova Scotia Health Authority and relevant government officials, advising them of ongoing staffing and safety concerns we have been hearing from frontline workers who work at the Halifax Infirmary Emergency Department.
We have asked them to include our members in a working group to help address some of the issues that are outlined in this letter. I plan to meet with officials from the NSHA next week, and will be raising these issues with them again during this meeting. I am confident that, if the government and employer are willing to work with us and the members we represent, we can help alleviate some of the pressure being placed on frontline workers due to the ongoing health care crisis.
Please keep an eye on your email for future updates.
