Hospital, ONA to Meet

Collingwood | by Mariane McLeod  

ONA President calls Collingwood Hospital's relations 'abysmal', to talk about conditions.

Collingwood's hospital CEO and the head of the Ontario Nurses Association are planning a meeting to talk about what the ONA has alleged are 'abysmal' labour practices at the facility.

The Nurses' Union sent a letter to the hospital CEO earlier this month.

In it, the ONA accuses the Collingwood hospital of spending too many operating dollars on battles with its nurses through arbitration.

The ONA says the hospital generally loses those arbitration cases.

The head of the Nurses' Union, Linda Haslam-Stroud, tells Bayshore Broadcasting News, it might take a month before the meeting takes place.

Calls to the Collingwood hospital CEO Linda Davis have not yet been returned.
