HALIFAX – Victorian Order of Nurses home support workers in Colchester/East Hants, as well as three other areas, will decide Tuesday whether to accept the latest offer from their employer or start the countdown to a strike.

The meeting, for 295 members of Local 35 of the NSGEU, was called late Monday after talks between the union and VON broke off. Rejecting the offer will trigger a 14-day countdown to a strike.

The union is looking for wage parity with care workers who perform the same tasks in hospitals and care establishments.
