The North East Community Care Access Centre and negotiators for 300 home care nurses in northeastern Ontario are seeking more contract talks. The two sides wrapped up two days of negotiations on Friday and plan more bargaining, the Ontario Nurses’ Association said in a release issued on the weekend.

ONA First Vice-President, Vicki McKenna says their dedicated, highly skilled, highly educated nurses and allied health professionals are vital to the communities of Sudbury, North Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, Timmins, Parry Sound, and Kirkland Lake.

McKenna says their members work as care coordinators, placement coordinators, care connectors, wound care nurses, mental health and addictions nurses, rapid response nurses and in Telehomecare. She says they provide excellent front-line care, school health support services, and therapy services in this region and remain committed to negotiating a fair deal that recognizes the value of the work they do.

The approximately 300 members have been working without a contract since March 2016.
