N.B. nursing home workers picket across province as contract talks continue into second day

Contract talks involving thousands of New Brunswick nursing home workers continued into a second day Tuesday as protests  took place in multiple cities around the province. 

CBC reporting members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees and supporters held protests in Moncton, Saint John, Fredericton and Miramichi after a weekend court order temporary blocked the union from going on strike. 

The union represents 4,100 licensed practical nurses, resident attendants and support workers at 46 non-profit nursing homes. 

Jodi Hall, executive director of the association, said in an email Tuesday afternoon the two sides continue to negotiate.
