When CBC inquired about the amount that had been set aside, Treasury Board spokeswoman Vicky Deschenes said no fixed amount had been specifically budgeted for union negotiations, as funding will depend on the agreements actually signed. Community social services and private sector employees are subject to three separate agreements: “If you cut, cut and cut – and with an aging population, I think people who work in the health care system, in the nursing home sector can see what`s going to happen in the five, 10, 15 years, and they can`t imagine the rest of their career under these circumstances. All HSA members in the public health sector are covered by one of three framework collective agreements: the negotiating teams of Resource Services and Specialized Health Care Professionals negotiated last week with provincial government officials. Preliminary agreements were reached over the weekend. Fredericton (June 04, 2015) – After extensive negotiations, the Union of New Brunswick (NBU/NUPGE) has reached preliminary agreements for two of its negotiating components. Although nursing home workers are the most advanced in the bargaining process – now without a contract for 30 months – several other unions are trying to renew their own collective agreements. Paula Doucet, president of the nurses` union, said it was important to show support for workers at the nursing home. Doucet said they are closely monitoring the conflict in nursing homes, as she believes registered nurses could find themselves in a similar stalemate with the Higgs government.

“The nursing home workers are the first to make this stand,” Cormier said. “To say you know what`s enough. We received these peanuts long enough. He believes that after years of cuts in the province, things have reached a critical point. “We`re also at the table, so we think what`s going to happen to you is going to happen to us,” Maria Richard, vice president of the Union Nurses of New Brunswick, said at a rally last month outside the Fredericton courts. Asked why now, Cormier said he believed workers had been patient and believed that previous promises in subsequent negotiations would increase more. It has been a month since nearly 4,000 unionized employees of retirement homes in the non-profit sector voted overwhelmingly in favor of a strike. And while nursing home staff have turned their heads calling for a 20% increase over four years, others are already making it clear that they plan to follow suit. * The employer of the retirement home workers is the New Brunswick Nursing Homes Association. Although the association is funded by the province, nursing home workers are not counted among the 25 bargaining units that the province directly faces. .
