JUNE 27: Provincial Day of Action for Support Workers in Long-term Care

We all deserve better and that includes support workers in long-term care who are an important part of the “team” that delivers care. By not extending any wage adjustments to all job classifications, the PC government is not recognizing the value these workers provide. This includes dietary and kitchen staff, laundry, maintenance, recreation, and others who work in support positions in nursing homes.

CUPE support staff who work in long-term care, their co-workers, and friends, will hold rallies across the province as part of a “Day of Action” on Monday, June 27, calling on the government to increase wages for support staff too.

Rallies will take place from 11 am to 1 pm.
