Registered nurses with the Leeds and Grenville Community Family Health Team in Brockville and Gananoque, both in Ontario, are heading to conciliation on March 21, in an attempt to reach a new collective agreement.

The 10 nurses — just one of whom is full-time, with the balance part-time and casual — have been in negotiations for a new contract since last June, said the Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA).

“These RNs have not had a salary increase in more than four years and have been negotiating in good faith for nine months,” said Vicki McKenna, president ONA.

ONA is the union representing more than 65,000 registered nurses and health-care professionals, as well as 18,000 nursing student affiliates, providing care in hospitals, long-term care facilities, public health, the community, clinics and industry.
