Nurses reach tentative deal in Norfolk County

Public health nurses in Norfolk County are voting this afternoon on a tentative agreement that may end the first Ontario nursing strike in almost a decade.

The tentative deal to end the 12-day old strike was reached overnight with assistance of a mediator appointed by the Ministry of Labour.

“I want to again thank everyone in this community who showed such overwhelming support and respect for our nurses,” said Linda Haslam Stroud, president of the 59,000 member Ontario Nurses’ Association.
