A message from Bob Holder, President, OPSEU Local 243
Sisters and Brothers,
Local 294, CarePartners, has been on strike for 5 days. They need our help. The employer is bringing in scab labour and is using extreme bullying tactics. They have hired security to photograph and video tape our members. This group of home care nurses and admin support have been fighting for 20 months to get a first contract. The CEO, Linda Knight, has shown only disrespect.
Please consider making a donation, joining their picket line, and/or contacting the CEO-tell her to get back to the table and bargain a fair contract!
Donations can be made out to:
OPSEU Local 294 and sent to the Niagara Regional Office-2285 Highway 20 East, Fonthill, L0H 1E6
149 Hartzel Rd, St. Catharines
7am - 5pm
