CUPE’s Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU) negotiates a province-wide central collective agreement with the Ontario Hospital Association. Outside hospitals, about 30,000 members are employed in long-term care facilities, as well as in community care access centres and agencies delivering front-line community care. HCWCC co-ordinates bargaining, and campaigns to improve working conditions and the quality of public health care.
