Pembroke Regional Hospital Staff Take Part in Workplace Action for Respect
Today staff at the Pembroke Regional Hospital will join thousands of other hospital staff across the province in solidarity and protest for respect.
Nurses, personal support workers, porters, dietary, administrative and trades staff will be wearing a sticker that says, "Together for Respect".
It's rare for hospital staff to visibly protest because of the vital work they do, so the sticker is considered a legal and informative way to make a quiet statement to push Ontario hospitals to return to bargaining. They are pushing for a collective agreement for 75,000 hospital sector members by three of Ontario's largest unions
In this round of provincial bargaining with the three unions, hospitals have asked for significant concessions, refused to address the growing issue of workplace violence and offered wages below the prevailing norm.
