New radio ad: We All Deserve Better

CUPE Nova Scotia’s Long Term Care Coordinating Committee is launching a new radio ad on Monday, June 20. The ad will run provincewide until June 26, leading up to their Day of Action planned for June 27.

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. Click here for more information.

Listen to the radio ad

Safe, quality care in nursing homes requires a whole team of workers – and that includes dietary, laundry, housekeeping, maintenance, and many others.

But earlier this year, the PC government failed to recognize the important work these support staff provide, by excluding them from a long overdue wage adjustment.

Please join us at rallies across the province on June 27, listed on our website at

Tell the Houston government that all workers in long-term care deserve better.
