Council of Hospital Unions President Expects More Layoffs

The province's new five-year health care plan is more concerned with dollars and cents than delivering services to patients. 

That from the President of the Council of Hospital Unions, Norma Robinson. Robinson tells CHSJ News they're fully expecting to see more layoffs, but what they're unsure of is when and where the job cuts will be happening---which she says is very frustrating.

The New Brunswick Nurses Union says they're concerned about how little detail was shared about how the plan will be carried out, and how it affects the role of registered nurses.
