NewsCCAC Workers on Strike SHARE ON: Valerie Isaac, staff Monday, Feb. 2nd, 2015 Nurses with the North East CCAC are now on strike. The decision did not come easily but after feeling like being treated like second-class citizens they felt there was nothing else left to do. The more than 3000 nurses will not be taking on any new clients until the negotiations are resolved and they are back on the job. The CCAC nurses include those in north eastern Ontario. Negotiations on a pay raise began in March of last year.
