Nurses in legal strike position Thursday
HALIFAX – Mediated talks are set to resume Monday aimed at averting a strike by 2,400 nurses in the Halifax area.
The Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union and the Capital District Health Authority agreed Friday to resume their contact talks.
The nurses will be in a legal strike position Thursday.
The health authority said last week it has started cancelling elective surgeries ahead of a possible walkout.
Premier Stephen McNeil has said he hopes both sides can reach a resolution before it comes to that.
He has also said the government is looking at its options in the event no deal is reached.
