The website Thunder Bay News Watch reports that OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas is bringing the provincial government's attention to labour disputes at Owen Sound Family Health Organization and the Port Arthur Health Centre.

The website says: "OPSEU believes both disputes reflect poorly on doctors who are pursuing a fee increase from the province."

"The Ontario government should take note of these two labour disputes as it negotiates with doctors, who are demanding a 15 per cent increase in their fees," said Thomas.
