Dear Members,

It is with grateful hearts that we announce we have reached an agreement with the Employer that in the event bargaining is unsuccessful, the parties will be able to initiate binding arbitration WITHOUT 60 days of job action.

BIG THANKS to all Manitobans and NURSES who have worked tirelessly to support one another in order to ensure that nurses can continue to provide the highest standards of care, knowing if bargaining is unsuccessful, we have recourse at arbitration to obtain a fair and reasonable contract.

We will continue to bargain and additional dates have been scheduled.

We appreciate each one of you and are immensely relieved that nurses can continue to be there for you without interuption to the care we give.
