The Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA) CCAC bargaining units have been seeking very small wage increases equal to the percentages given to the other 57,000 members of ONA in the hospital, public health, and long-term care sectors. The CCAC members had a two-year wage freeze in their last contract, which expired March 31, 2014. Nine of the 10 bargaining units have voted to strike.
