CUPE Reaches Tentative Agreement With Port Hawkesbury Nursing Home

SYDNEY, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 3, 2011) - CUPE Local 3630 has reached a tentative agreement in bargaining with the Port Hawkesbury Nursing Home.

CUPE National Representative John Evans says, "Given that we were in a strike countdown, this is a positive development. We were able to get a deal with the help of a Conciliator from the Department of Labour."

Evans says a ratification meeting is scheduled for February 6 at the Maritime Inn Port Hawkesbury. There will be two sessions, 1:30 pm and 3:00pm.

No details of the agreement will be released until after ratification.
