ONA Local 8 RNs present MPPs with Petitions
Tonight ONA Local 8 hosted a Night with the Nurses. Registered nurses and nurse practitioners had an open and honest discussion with Lisa Gretzky and Percy Hatfield, local NDP MPPs about the cuts to health care and the real danger this poses to patients. Highlighted was the drastic RN hours lost at WRH with the reduction of over 170 RN positions.
The Local also presented Lisa Gretzky and Percy Hatfield with over 7800 petitions calling for the end to the RN cuts and restore funding to our health care system. Our petitions will be read into legislation May 9th at Queens' Park.
