Statement regarding health care memo

A recent memo regarding continued travel restrictions for health care workers was issued by the provincial government.
It means health care workers will not be allowed to travel in the same manner as other New Brunswickers after the province reached its Phase 2 goal on the Path to Green.
Health care workers – represented by NBU and several other public sector unions – have sacrificed throughout the pandemic and are disappointed in the province’s decision and manner in which it was communicated.
We are in contact with other unions on this topic as well as government. We are examining all options available to us to try and rectify this situation.
We are working to find a solution for our members who have done so much for this province to get us to this point.
Susie Proulx-Daigle, President of the NBU
