Ruling affecting 4,000 N.B. nursing home workers expected Monday

A Decision affecting thousands of New Brunswick workers will be revealed today.

CBC reporting Judge Paulette Garnette will reveal her decision today on whether to extend or rescind the Court of Queen's Bench ruling that prohibited more than 4,000 New Brunswick nursing home workers from striking for higher pay and better working conditions.

Garnette will hand down her ruling in court at 1:30 p.m.

Two weeks ago, more than 90 per cent of workers voted in favour of a strike for higher pay and better conditions. But the court of Queen's Bench granted a 10-day stay on March 10, preventing the workers from striking.

The union wants the stay rescinded so that its members can strike.
