Province, unions reach deals

VICTORIA — B.C. Premier Christy Clark on Friday announced a tentative agreement with resident physicians in B.C. hospitals, also a two-year deal under cooperative gains.

On Wednesday, the labour deals continued, as the government and the B.C. Nurses’ Union announced a tentative agreement for 32,000 Registered Nurses and Registered Psychiatric Nurses.

Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said the agreement includes a “modest” wage increase, with details to be released after members vote on it.
