CUPE 966 members at two long term care homes in the Regional Municipality of Peel saw almost $1.6 million in pay equity settlements recently.

“We’ve been doing a lot of work on this,” said CUPE 966 president Mary-Jo Falle.

The payouts cover those who worked at Peel Manor and Sheridan Village between 1992 and 2003 and could amount to a few thousand dollars per employee.

But there’s more to come.

The union has yet to resolve payments for those employed between 2003 and the present, as well as payments for two other long term care facilities the region opened after 2003.

The union first negotiated a pay equity plan with the Region of Peel in 1992. But after years of meetings, the local finally applied to the Pay Equity Commuission to have the plan enforced.

People who worked at Peel Manor or Sheridan Village between 1992 and 2003 should contact the union if they haven’t received their payment.
