Workers with the Seaview Manor nursing home in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia voted April 12 to settle their week-old strike. The 101 members of CUPE 2094 perform a wide range of housekeeping and patient care duties.

They are the first local to ratify a tentative agreement that was hammered out at an historic 32-hour mediated session between CUPE nursing home locals and the provincial government.

The agreement achieves all of the union’s five major proposals: wage parity with the acute care sector, a grandparenting clause for personal care workers; job security language; improved resident/staff ratios and a defined pension plan for workers.
