MEDIA RELEASE: Tentative Agreement Reached for Health Care Workers
“This agreement includes a wage offer and language improvements that are reasonable and recognize the significant contributions health care workers make each and every day,” said NSGEU President Jason MacLean.
“After five days of conciliation, we believe the deal put on the table late Tuesday afternoon was one that indeed was enough to reverse the decision to ask our membership to contemplate strike action,” said Les Duff Acting President of Local 8920.
“I’m pleased that the bargaining committee was able to reach a tentative agreement to bring back to these members who have been on the frontline of the pandemic for more than a year now,” said Unifor Atlantic Regional Director Linda MacNeil.
Details of the agreement will not be shared until members have had the opportunity to review and vote on the agreement.
The Health Care Council of Unions bargaining committee is made up of six members from NSGEU, three from CUPE and one from Unifor. For more information, please contact:
