Nelson House Nurses On Strike

Tue, 2015-05-12

Nurses working at the Nisichawayasihk Personal Care Home in Nelson House went on strike today.

Outstanding issues include equity in salaries and premiums with other nurses covered by MNU agreements throughout Manitoba as well as retroactivity. Picket lines were set up this morning.

MNU President Sandi Mowat will be at the picket line this week.
