Alberta nurses approve 4-year contract deal with province

EDMONTON - Alberta will have four years of labour peace with its nurses after union members ratified a contract deal with the province.

The United Nurses of Alberta will get a seven-and-a-half per cent raise and $4,000 in signing bonuses over the term of the contract.

The deal, which also includes assurances of no nursing care cutbacks, was worked out last month with the assistance of a mediator.

The contract covers about 26,000 registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses.

The employer group is made up of Alberta Health Services, Covenant Health, Lamont Health Centre and Bethany Group in Camrose.

Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services in the province.
