With two unions battling over licensed practical nurses, the counting of ballots LPN's cast back in June, still, has yet to start.
BC's Health Minister Margaret Macdiarmid was asked if she has concerns over the three months and counting in getting LPN's ballots tabulated.
"You know I know that this issue is with the LRB and I am not certain about what the delay is. I know everyone is anxious to know the results but this is with the LRB I think it has been quite complicated, I can't speak for them, but I believe it has been quite complicated."
While the Labour Relations Board is playing a role the Employment Standards Branch will do the actual count, which 'might' happen at the end of this week.
This is the second attempt by the BC Nurses Union to try and lure LPN's away from the Hospital Employees Union.
The effort is widely condemned by other union leaders.
The votes will be counted in each of BC's six health authorities separately with the possibility of different results in each.
