Support staff at two Manitoba personal care homes owned by Extendicare Inc. held information pickets this week to raise concern about short staffing.

Support staff at Tuxedo Villa and Oakview Place are handing out information about the problem management is creating by short staffing. “The members are concerned about the welfare of their residents – they want to see them get the best possible care, but they are just too rushed to meet all the residents’ needs,” CUPE National Representative Pam Beattie said.

The union and Extendicare have been in bargaining for a new collective agreement since last October.
