Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 966 and the Ontario Health Coalition (OHC) will hold a press conference on Tuesday, December 6 at 9:30 a.m. at Peel Manor Long-Term Care Centre. 

The press conference will address the possible sale of Peel Manor, the largest long-term care facility in Peel Region, and the threat to four other long-term care facilities in the Region. 

Peel Manor has offered excellent care to the most vulnerable members of our community for over 100 years,” said Mary-Jo Falle, President of CUPE 966, representing personal care workers and kitchen staff at the Manor. 

Peel Manor, and the other four homes in Peel, provide a high level of care – as good as or better than any long-term care home in the province – and are home to hundreds of seniors. Displacing them would severely affect their quality of life. The mere suggestion of a sale has already begun to make our residents anxious,” said Falle.
