Negotiations will not be public: Minister

Tom Marshall, the minister responsible for the Public Service Secretariat, which negotiates major contracts with the government, told VOCM Backtalk with Paddy Daley not to expect to hear any more from the provincial government as negotiations continue with the Pharmacy Association of Newfoundland and Labrador. A group of independent pharmacists, who don’t believe they are represented by their own governing body, have been doing their best to have their opinions heard in recent months with paid advertising and threats to retract from the Provincial drug program. But Marshall says the chair and one of the members of the only group the province will negotiate with – the Pharmacy Association – are independent pharmacists, while the third is a former independent pharmacist.
