Nurses across Ontario are planning pickets to advocate for better health care – and one will take place in Bancroft.
An Ontario Nurses Association representative for North Hastings says a picket is planned for Thursday, February 23. It will be from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the corner of Hastings and Station streets.
The rep says the pickets are to express concern for what she calls “an erosion of the healthcare system.” They come as the ONA negotiates for better care, better wages and better safety for its members.
The local rep says that the ONA hopes guests will come out to the picket and show support.
