60 dedicated long-term care workers at Glen Hill Marnwood in Bowmanville have received layoff notice from Durham Christian Homes during the second wave of a pandemic.
Doug Ford and his Conservative government promised to deliver better care for seniors and take care of long-term care workers.
Giving pink slips to workers during a pandemic will diminish care for seniors. The conditions of work are the conditions of care.
The provincial government must step in to ensure that all Glen Hill Marnwood staff are respected and their layoff notices rescinded. All these workers should be moved over to the new Durham Christian Homes Glen Hill site in Whitby with their existing collective agreement, no contracting out, and no concessions for existing and new workers.
