Layoffs Of Healthcare Workers Have Begun

Provincial Health Minister Madelaine Dube has given workers at Miramichi City Hospital assurances there won't be any forced layoffs as the Horizon Health Network looks to cut costs and balance its books.

The President of the New Brunswick Council of Hospital Unions Norma Robinson tells CHSJ News that assurance doesn't include the CUPE members who work outside Miramichi.

Robinson says the layoffs have already begun in Fredericton and Moncton and the union has been told they'll be carried out in waves.
