Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne says negotiations will soon resume with the province’s doctors – who’ve been without a contract for three years.

It’s been a lengthy and messy dispute – with the Ontario Medical Association saying doctors would not return to the negotiating table – unless the government introduced binding arbitration.

Health Minister Eric Hoskins has said the government would be willing to discuss binding arbitration – but he wouldn’t accept it as a pre-condition to negotiations.

Wynne says Ontario is “committed to the principle of interest arbitration” –  and when talks re-start the government will work toward negotiating an interest arbitration process.

The news follows word from the OMA that it has established a new negotiating committee – 10 days after its executive committee resigned – after a vote of non-confidence at an OMA meeting.
