The union representing striking public health nurses at the Thunder Bay District Health Unit is waiting for a response to a counter-offer made earlier this week.
On Monday, the Ontario Nurses’ Association presented the health unit with a counter-offer, two weeks after the strike began.
As of late Tuesday afternoon, the Ontario Nurses’ Association had not received a response from the Thunder Bay District Health Unit.
The public health nurses went on strike Oct. 16 after a final contract offer from their employer was rejected. The nurses have been without a contract for almost two years and are looking for wage parity with other public health nurses in the province.
