Health Care Workers Coordinating Committee


The Health Care Workers' Coordinating Committee brings together locals representing more than 60,000 members in Ontario's hospitals, long-term care facilities, CCACs, community care and emergency services.

It represents hospital dietary, service and maintenance workers, registered practical nurses, engineers, clerical staff, and ambulance and paramedical personnel. Most belong to CUPE's Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU), which negotiates a province-wide central collective agreement with the Ontario Hospital Association.

The HCWCC also represents 30,000 workers employed in nursing homes, municipal and charitable homes for the aged across Ontario. The committee co-ordinates bargaining for home workers and develops political action campaigns to improve the quality of CUPE long-term care facilities and to defend the rights of long-term care workers.

Finally, HCWCC represents workers in community care access centres and in agencies that deliver frontline community care. The HCWCC has two subcommittees: the Community Care Subcommittee and the Ambulance Workers Subcommittee.
