This agreement is subject to ratification by the 5,200 members of the RNUNL from all over the province. “Our nurses are always there and provide care and compassion when we need it most. We see it first-hand during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The extension of this agreement provides support to union members, employers and workers. We look forward to continued cooperation with RNUNL and cooperation to improve the health care system in Newfoundland and Labrador.┬áThe Honourable John Haggie Minister of Health and Community Services The NLNU said 97 per cent of nurses who voted were in favour of the agreement. Quotes “I am very pleased that we have reached a preliminary agreement with the registered nurses in our province. While we continue to focus on balancing the budget through our collective agreements with public sector unions, we continue to work on agreements that recognize the significant contributions of our people to the public service. This agreement is proof of the meticulous work of the bargaining teams and the commitment of both parties to reach a fair agreement that recognizes the valuable work of registered nurses in a fiscally responsible manner.┬áHonourable Tom Osborne Minister of Finance and President of the Treasury Board and Minister of Personnel In April and October 2018, the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Public and Private Employees (PANE) ratified 16 collective agreements, while in December 2018, the Union of Canadian Public Employment (CUPE) ratified seven collective agreements. In January 2019, the government secured a ratified collective agreement with the Allied Health Professionals Association (AAHP), while the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers` Association (NLTA) ratified its collective agreement on March 4. Over the past 12 months, the provincial government has won remarkable collective bargaining and has secured 25 ratified collective agreements in addition to this interim agreement. Members of New Land and the Labrador Nurses` Union (NLNU) ratified the provincial collective agreement reached in May. “And the wage increases in this agreement will eventually make us the highest-paid RNs in Atlantic Canada.” About two hours before its members were ready to picket past hospitals and nursing homes, the Union of Newfoundland and Labrador Nurses` reached a preliminary agreement with the government. .
