The group home employees work for agencies entirely funded by the Department of Social Services, but they are paid much less than government employees doing work of equal value. National CUPE President Judy Darcy will join CUPE group home workers Joanne Mountney and Veronica Erickson at this news conference. The news conference will take place in the Venice Room at the Radisson Hotel.
