Talks have once again broken down between the union that represents New Brunswick's nursing home workers and the province.
The two sides have been meeting for several days.
In a statement Tuesday night, Social Development Minister Dorothy Shephard says while talks have been respectful, they reached an impasse on Tuesday afternoon.
It goes on to say the province is optimistic a negotiated agreement will be reached, but the province's fiscal reality must be taken into account.
