CUPE 8600 fights back against cuts to northern health care

Health care support workers in the Northern Regional Health Authority (NRHA) held info pickets and a rally on Thursday, May 25th at Pioneer Square and at Northern Lights Manor in Flin Flon against the provincial government’s mandate to find $6m in “savings” in the NRHA.
