Manitoba nurses have reached an agreement with the provincial government to address patient care and workload issues.
The Manitoba Nurses Union has concluded the central table agreement, which represents about 10,000 of the union’s 12,000 members.
The union and province will work to reduce overtime for nurses and in turn improve patient care and ensure healthier workplaces for nurses.
The agreement contains an annual wage increase of two percent through 2016, with a 1.1 percent market adjustment this year and in the final year of the deal.
A ratification date is set for April 30.
