Events & Conferences
On March 8, CUPE, SEIU, and Unifor health and long-term care workers will launch their campaign to demand respect, protection, and adequate compensation for all health care workers: Respect Us, Protect Us, Pay Us.
Following the overstress of health care resources and failure of Ontario’s long-term care system during the COVID-19 pandemic, health care workers are uniting to demand action from the Ford government.
The campaign will officially launch on International Women’s Day in recognition of the fact that a significant number of health and long-term care workers are racialized women workers subject to low pay, precarious work conditions.
We are asking CUPE health and long-term care locals to take photos of your members wearing the stickers and holding up the posters.
Join CUPE Ontario’s president, University sector chair, staff, and experts for a Zoom webinar about COVID-19 vaccines at 7:00pm on March 11th.
We know there are a lot of questions about vaccines, including questions about safety, effectiveness, and your obligations in the workplace.
This call is open to all CUPE Ontario university sector members and will provide an opportunity to ask those questions and debunk vaccine myths.
Please note we will be offering simultaneous French interpretation and ASL. Please let us know by March 8, 2021 so we can ensure that this accommodation is put in place.
