Nursing Day of Action: Friday, September 17th
Tomorrow (Friday, September 17th), the Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions will be holding a Day of Action to demand change and protest the lack of government action to fix the critical nursing shortage and make urgently needed improvements to our beleaguered health care system.
In Nova Scotia, we will be joining the Nova Scotia Nurses’ Union for a rally outside their office building (150 Garland Avenue, Dartmouth), and so we can show solidarity on this critical issue. Local 101 President Kerri Webster-MacIsaac and President Jason MacLean will be in attendance, with Kerri speaking on behalf of NSGEU nurses.
Canada is facing a nursing crisis. Without urgent action by provincial and federal governments to address our national nursing shortage and dangerous working conditions, things will only get worse as more and more nurses consider leaving the profession.
Nurses are done asking for safe work, fair contracts, and enough staff to give our patients the care they deserve.
