SYDNEY – Employees in continuing care facilities across the province are holding strike votes.
- CUPE 3513, Braemore Home voted 90 per cent
- CUPE 4172, Society for the Treatment of Autism, voted 95 per cent
- CUPE 3008(a), Resicare voted 95 per cent
- CUPE 3067, New Dawn Guest Home voted 100 per cent
CUPE national representative Kathy MacLeod says, “These strike mandates were given by the locals to support their demands for the same package that was given to CUPE nursing home workers earlier this year.”
Says MacLeod, “We are in conciliation tomorrow (June 27) with the Department of Community Services for workers in adult residential centres, residential care facilities, as well as small options and group homes.”
CUPE 3513 is the ‘lead table’ in this round of bargaining.
