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.

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
CUPE 4000 Town Hall, Wednesday June 10, 2020, 7:15 pm, phone number 1-877-229-8493 access code 119574#
Or access through your computer: https://video.teleforumonline.com/video/streaming.php?client=19574
We are looking forward to speaking with you all.
CUPE 4000 Executive
With the Ontario Government announcing that it will be extending the Emergency Order until May 19, 2020. This must be their way of controlling social distancing until after the long weekend.
With that being said, we’ll have to cancel our membership meeting for May 12 2020.
OTTAWA – The Ottawa Local of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers will tomorrow April 30th, 2020 acknowledge and show their appreciation and thanks to all those working in Ottawa area hospitals by forming a caravan at the Ottawa General, Ottawa Civic and the Queensway Carleton Hospital.
“Our membership wanted to reach out to health care workers in the city and show our tremendous appreciation and thanks to all those workers for what they have done and continue to do during this coronavirus pandemic. It was decided a Health Care Workers Express convoy of our members driving safely past the hospital with signs and waving was a small way we could perhaps show that sentiment”, said Ian Anderson, president of the CUPW Ottawa Local.
The caravan at the three Ottawa area hospitals is set to commence at approximately 10:15am simultaneously at the Ottawa Hospital General Campus on Smyth Road, the Civic Campus on Carling Avenue as well as the Queensway Carleton hospital on Baseline Road.
The Ottawa Local 580 of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers is comprised of approximately 1200 members employed by Canada Post.
