“AHS and UNA have received a Mediator’s recommendation to settle bargaining with Alberta’s registered nurses. The Mediator’s recommendation comes after months of dedicated negotiations.

“I respect the frontline and unique clinical role nurses have played – and continue to play – during the COVID pandemic. This deal recognizes their hard work and dedication, and the many sacrifices nurses have made since the pandemic began.

“I also want to thank both AHS and UNA for their efforts.

“If ratified, this deal will form the basis for labour stability in the healthcare system.

“Out of respect for the union’s process I’m unable to speak to the specifics of the deal at this time, but I look forward to the results of the ratification vote.”
