Lifelines - Tues, Apr 1, 5:30 p.m.m - RNs to return to work, contingency plans for legal strike continue

Tuesday, April 1, 2014 - 5:51pm

  • NSGEU is asking all members of Local 97 (registered nurses) to return to work. This is in compliance with the Nova Scotia Labour Board’s cease and desist ruling issued earlier today. 
  • The 2,400 members of Local 97 remain in a legal strike position as of 12:01 a.m. Thursday, April 3. Contingency plans continue to ensure that Capital Health can provide emergency care in the event of a strike.
  • Capital Health President and CEO Chris Power and other senior leaders held a media briefing at 1 p.m. today. You can watch it on the Capital Health Youtube channel.
  • There is a great deal of misinformation during this time. Capital Health is addressing rumours on our website.
  • All employees are expected to wear their IDs at all times and use main entrances. Some secondary entrances have been locked to ensure safe access to all facilities. Security will be checking IDs. If you need a new ID, speak to your manager as soon as possible.
