As you are aware, we reached a tentative new three-year contract with CarePartners on Saturday, January 25, 2020.
Kitchener, Ontario (December 11, 2019)— Hundreds of frontline healthcare workers and union supporters rally at the CarePartners’ corporate head office to fight back against the homecare agency’s recent move towards locking out their almost 3,000 personal support workers (PSWs). A lockout by CarePartners could leave thousands of seniors without the daily care they need during the holiday season.
From June 26 to 28, your bargaining committee was back at the table negotiating with CarePartners to improve your working conditions. For this round of bargaining we had the assistance of an Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB) conciliator, a neutral third party to assist with moving bargaining forward.
Last week, members from CarePartners across the province held rallies to let their employers know that their outdated ways of care are unacceptable. From April 8 to April 12, members marched on their bosses at six different branches: Quinte, Central West Peel, Chatham Kent, Simcoe, Wellington Waterloo, and Brockville.
