The government has a lot of time left in their "mandate" to totally destroy our health care system. These laid-off nurses are likely to have at least some seniority, since PCN postings all had minimum experience requirements, usually 5 years. If they choose not to work in a non-union workplace they'll stay where they are, but I think it would be fairly fool-hardy to choose that, given the current climate for nurses in this province - again. So they're going to bump. the ripples from this will spread for a long time.
