The organization represents 76,000 nurses, nursing assistants and respiratory therapists — the vast majority of healthcare professionals in Quebec.

The agreement-in-principle touches upon working conditions, such as job creation and overtime as well as wages and a regional gap in salaries.

The deal will be submitted to members of the union next week for approval.
