CUPE Ontario’s leaders made the case that on-site staff across the province who have continued to show up for work through school closures and periods of online learning are at high risk of contracting COVID-19 on the job and deserve vaccine priority.
“We’re here today to shine a light on the front-line workers whose work puts them in danger of infection every day, and by extension exposes their families to that same level of danger,” said Candace Rennick, secretary treasurer of CUPE Ontario.
