Striking nurses at the District Health Unit are getting more outside help in an effort to kick-start negotiations with management.
They brought in national nurses union rep Linda Silas to help bolster calls for a return to the talk table.
She believes it’s ridiculous the strike has gone on for 11 days with no end in sight.
The nurses union leader is questioning how the Health Unit can allow a strike to take place as the flu season gets underway.
The nurses are looking for wage parity with other provincial public health nurses, Silas says that amounts to “only $3 an hour.”
