Workers at Canadian Hearing Society offices across Ontario have gone four years without a new contract. Instead of trying to settle a deal to put the past four years behind and focus on moving forward, the Canadian Hearing Society is asking for a large rollback to employee health benefits with no wage increases to address the rising cost of living. Workers at the Canadian Hearing Society provide valuable services to the Culturally Deaf, Oral Deaf, Deafened and Hard of Hearing. They do interpretation work, provide employment services and mental health counselling to the community. They also operate trusted audiology and technical devices programs throughout the province. Many of these workers are part of the Deaf Community themselves. These workers deserve respect, fairness and a contract that acknowledges their work and addresses the rising cost of living of the past four years. This is why I am calling on you, Julia Dumanian, as CEO of the Canadian Hearing Society, to end this strike. Show these workers some respect, negotiate a fair deal now and work as partners to settle any major issues in the next round of bargaining.
