Rallying in support

hospital rally

Sam Odrowski

A group of workers at La Verendrye Hospital held a rally late yesterday morning in support of the 75,000 hospital workers who want to bargain fairly. Similar rallies were scheduled across Ontario, including at the health centres in Emo and Rainy River, to support the “Together for Respect” campaign co-ordinated by CUPE, SIEU, and Unifor. Hospital workers are looking to negotiate a contract without concessions, with a modest wage increase and stronger workplace violence protections.
