AMHERST – CUPE hospital workers with the Cumberland Health Authority will be meeting in Amherst on Thursday to hear about a so-called healthcare superboard for the province.

CUPE acute care co-ordinator Wayne Thomas will be making a presentation about what the experience has been in other provinces - in particular Alberta and New Brunswick, where they have moved in this direction.

"Restructuring of this nature would have major implications for labour relations, while also removing crucial health care decision-making from communities across the province and centralizing them in Halifax," said Thomas.

Thomas says the union will be holding eight meetings over the next couple of weeks right across the province.

Organizations: CUPE hospital, Cumberland Health Authority

Geographic location: Amherst, Alberta, New Brunswick Halifax
