ONA Handed a Two Year Deal

The Ontario Nurses Association isn't pleased with an arbitration decision on contracts.

The two year award for ONA members provides a 2.8 percent wage increase over the life of the deal.

The Association says that barely keep up with the rate of inflation.

The ONA says registered nurses had every expectation of moving back to more appropriate compensation
that reflects the value of RN's to health care.

They expected a decision that would have been more in line with increases given to other essential workers.
