TORONTO, Nov. 16, 2011 /CNW/ - Ontario Nurses' Association (ONA) Grey
Bruce Public Health Nurses and Registered Nurses providing care for the
Grey Bruce community have narrowly voted to accept a contract offer
from their employer.
"This was a very difficult round of negotiations for our dedicated
Public Health Nurses," said ONA President Linda Haslam-Stroud, RN. "The
work these nurses do is invaluable and this contract does not reflect
that fact. Our nurses know they are at the forefront of promoting
health and preventing disease for the Grey Bruce community, including
ensuring that babies get the healthiest start to life."
ONA is the union representing 57,000 front-line RNs and allied health
professionals and more than 12,000 nursing student affiliates providing
care in Ontario communities, hospitals, long-term care facilities,
public health, industry and clinics.
