CFNU National Petition on Violence Against Health Care Workers

The Canadian Federation of Nurses’ Unions has launched a petition on workplace violence via the House of Commons - Petition E-1902.

As the parliamentary health committee prepares to undertake their study on violence in health care in the New Year, a strong show of support for this petition will bolster their efforts and support resulting recommendations.

National data shows that the number of violence-related accepted lost-time injuries for frontline health care workers increased by close to 66 per cent between 2006 and 2015, and that 61 per cent of nurses experienced a serious problem with some form of violence over a recent 12-month period.

The petition closes on February 20, 2019. Let’s show the country that Nova Scotia nurses are informed, engaged and fighting for change. Sign the petition today.
