Nelson House Nurses On Strike

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.

Negotiations broke down as a result of the Federal government not committing their share of funding for nurses. The Provincial government has committed its share of the funds required.

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