Important Long Term Care events in the coming weeks

There are number of very important matters related to the Long Term Care sector that will be taking place over the next couple of months.

We have received confirmation that the Time to Care Act will be coming up for a vote at second reading on October 28th. This is likely our best chance yet to get this legislation passed and we will be undertaking a concerted lobby effort to try and ensure that we can win this vote.

The LTC COVID-19 Commission is also going to start hearing submissions this month and we will need to hear from members about their front-line experiences during the pandemic so that we can ensure their voices are heard by the Commissioners.

There are a number of very important events coming up in the next few weeks. It’s incredibly important that as many people as possible participate in these events. Please forward to your locals and encourage them to participate. As noted below most of these events are open and not limited to LTC locals.

Town Hall Meeting June 10

Hello CUPE 4000 members,

As you know, COVID-19 has decreased our ability to safely gather as much as we would like.

Due to this, we’ve unfortunately had to cancel our June 9, 2020, General Membership Meeting (GMM) scheduled for 7:30pm.

Since the importance of discussing our working conditions is more critical than ever, we will hold a phone-in, conference call type Town Hall, on Wednesday, June 10, 2020 7:15 PM.

Instead of discussing regular Union business and following a GMM format, we will speak to an agenda of items, and then answer any of your questions.

Our current agenda is:

  • Government Emergency Order Update
  • Health and Safety Update
  • Pandemic Pay Update
  • Operating Rooms Reopening and Expansion
  • Questions

CUPE 4000 Town Hall, Wednesday June 10, 2020, 7:15 pm, phone number 1-877-229-8493 access code 119574#

We are looking forward to speaking with you all.

In solidarity,
CUPE 4000 Executive
