BC Health Strike

X-rays, C-T scans, ultrasound and other important medical procedures will be available to the public again today after the union called off rotating strikes it began last week.

B-C's health science professionals were handed a new contract proposal by the province late Saturday, and that's made the union change its tack.

President Reid Johnson says it's still not taking the deal, but says the dispute is with the government and not the public.

Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid says she's relieved workers will return, because strikes last week prompted the cancellation of three-thousand medical procedures.
