COVID-19 has brought systemic shortages in Ontario’s healthcare and long-term care systems to the forefront with tragic consequences. Unifor has joined CUPE and SEIU Healthcare in the ‘Respect Us. Protect Us. Pay Us.’ campaign on behalf of the unions’ 175,000 frontline healthcare workers.
Our COVID heroes need your help.
Workers from all sectors are asked to support the thousands of Unifor healthcare and long-term care members by joining the ‘Respect Us. Protect Us. Pay Us.’ action to call for the provincial government to properly fund healthcare to provide decent jobs and improved care for Ontarians.
Please join me at this pandemic-safe action, which will take place a day ahead of the release of the Ontario budget. Make your concerns, and horn, heard at a drive-by action at Queen’s Park on Tuesday, March 23.
