Public Health Nurses Reject Final Offer

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 | 5:30 PM | Windsor and Essex County


The following quote can be attributed to Theresa Marentette, CEO and Chief Nursing Officer of Windsor Essex Health County Unit:

“After another bargaining session last week, we made a final offer to ONA Local 8. We were very disappointed to learn that public health nurses once again rejected the offer, which contained a further increase over our previous offer.  The offer on the table was fair to our public health nurses, while at the same time responsible, in light of the very real cost pressures we are facing due to the growing demand for services in our region. 

 Our top priority remains ensuring the health and well-being of the residents of Windsor-Essex County. Despite the ongoing labour disruption, management is doing everything it can to ensure that essential services are delivered to the community. Please continue to consult our website for updates on programs and services.”
