Talks between the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses and the Saskatchewan Association of Health Organizations have reached an impasse.
The union says after seven months of bargaining, no progress has been made.
SUN president Tracy Zambory says they are incredibly disappointed to have reached this stage saying SAHO is missing an opportunity to find solutions to improving both the workplace and patient care.
SAHO is disappointed that the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses has declared an impasse in their negotiations.
CEO Doug Forseth thought negotiations were productive until SUN walked away from the bargaining table and declared the impasse.
He says what happens in collective bargaining has a significant impact throughout the system, so they are committed to achieving reasonable and fair collective agreements that are sustainable by the publicly-funded system.
Saskatchewan’s nurses have not a contract since April 1, 2014.
