The Windsor Essex Health County Unit says that a final offer made to their nurses has been rejected.

“After another bargaining session last week, we made a final offer to ONA Local 8. We were very disappointed to learn that public health nurses once again rejected the offer, which contained a further increase over our previous offer. The offer on the table was fair to our public health nurses, while at the same time responsible, in light of the very real cost pressures we are facing due to the growing demand for services in our region,” said Theresa Marentette, CEO and Chief Nursing Officer.

The Health Unit says that despite the ongoing labour disruption, management is doing everything it can to ensure that essential services are delivered to the community.

The more than 80 Nurse Practitioners, Public Health Nurses and Registered Practical Nurses at the Health Unit have been on strike since March 8th.
