Almost 3,000 health care workers went on strike Friday morning at nine Community Care Access Centres across Ontario, after rejecting a contract offer Thursday night.
The strike hit nine of the province’s 14 centres, all of which have workers represented by the Ontario Nurses’ Association: Central, Central East, Erie St. Clair, North East, North Simcoe Muskoka, North West, South East, South West and Waterloo Wellington.
Employees at the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant centre voted in favour of accepting the offer.
