BC Health Strike

Canadian Press

Negotiations resume today for members of the B-C Health Sciences Association who are planning job action at health care facilities later this week to press their contract demands.
The action begins Thursday -- a day later than first planned -- when pharmacists go to essential service levels, followed by medical imaging techs on Friday.
Association president Reid Johnson says if some progress is reached at the bargaining table, the union may call off planned protests, but if there's no progress the action could be escalated.
He says the union has not had a wage offer after eight months at the bargaining table and his members are frustrated. (The Canadian Press,CHNL)
