Nurses remain significantly undervalued by the government, and we believe a one-time signing bonus won’t work to retain and recruit nurses who are asking for long-term predictability and support.
We need a plan that works to fix the real problems that undermine our public healthcare system, including the immediate repeal of Bill 124. We need to be able to negotiate wage increases that reflect the hard work and sacrifices of nurses and other healthcare workers.
Here is what we know about the retention bonuses so far. If new information becomes available, it will be updated here.
