ONA, CCAC Agree To Arbitration

By Dr Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care

(TORONTO, ON) – I am pleased that striking health care providers represented by the Ontario Nurses’ Association will return to work today. Both parties involved in the labour negotiations have agreed to arbitration.

This is excellent news for more than 650,000 people, including seniors, who receive care through our Community Care Access Centres and community agencies.We value the hard work of thousands of dedicated nurses and health-care professionals who provide such excellent care to those individuals.

A strong system depends on these dedicated professionals and the valuable contribution they make to the health and well-being of the most vulnerable people in the province. They are essential to continuing the transformation of home and community care in Ontario.

We cannot do this without them.

It is my hope that a resolution can be quickly reached to ensure that people can continue to access the quality home and community services they need now and in the future.

  1. These dedicated workers should have never gone on strike in the first place, they have caused a lot of grief for some people that needed them. The only thing I get out of this walkout is their dedication is for money not for caring for their patience.
    The government is also responsible for this walkout that should never have happened, along with the union that endorsed this strike.
