We are the members of CUPE Local 1521. We work hard everyday to provide the quality care at the Ottawa-Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities (OCAPDD). It can be difficult work, but we do it because we care about the individuals we support, and we love to make a difference for them and their families.
OCAPDD is attempting to make our jobs even more difficult by reducing health benefits that ensure we can remain healthy and ready to do our jobs. We just want to negotiate a fair contract that respects our physically demanding work and protects the services we provide. We believe that no worker should see their working conditions reduced. We do not want a strike, but we are being pushed that way.
Help us continue to provide quality care to the individuals we support by telling OCAPDD to negotiate a fair contract now!
