The BC Nurses Union plans to be out in force again as the Island Health Board meets Wednesday in Campbell River. It’s part of the continuing fight over the care delivery model redesign. The union will deliver a petition and the results of a survey of nurses at Nanaimo Regional General.
The BCNU’s Jo Salken says they also wanted to speak at the meeting, but were denied.
Salken says the union still wants to see an independent review of CDMR before it starts in Victoria in April. She also says as the day gets nearer at Victoria General and Royal Jubilee, nurses there are adding new energy to the union’s campaign. Salken adds they’re hoping to get the public more involved as well.
