Toronto, Ont. – Home care workers from Links2Care, a not-for-profit home support agency, have voted unanimously to become members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE).
“We’re happy to welcome new members to the CUPE family,” said Paul Moist, CUPE national president. “CUPE is committed to improving wages and working conditions in this growing sector, and we’re happy to have an opportunity to work with our new sisters and brothers at Links2Care to advance workers’ rights.”
The 90 home care workers provide support and care to seniors and disabled people, helping them live independently and safely in their homes. The new CUPE members also offer community support programs, children’s programs and youth programs in the Regional Municipality of Halton, including the communities of Oakville, Georgetown, Acton and Glen Williams.
