“This employer still doesnt get it,” says Sally Woodcock, president of CUPE 2190. “Workloads are crushing our members and until we have the tools to deal with that problem, this strike will continue. Adding a position here, and a position there, is not going to cut it. We need protection in our contract because its the only way to protect the quality of our services.”
The strike began on July 14th, when 250 childrens aid workers walked off the job over the critical issue of crushing workloads, and the impact they are having on the workers ability to protect children who may be at risk.
