CUPE TO HOLD RALLY IN RENFREW, CALLING FOR MORE LONG TERM CARE
8/8/2017 10:43:29 AM
The union representing workers at long term care homes in the province is staging a rally in dowtown Renfrew this afternoon. Members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) are calling on the province to make sure residents of long term care homes get at least four hours of daily care a day by making it law. Union officials say Ontario long-term care patients are older and sicker than they were a decade ago. The majority have some form of cognitive impairment. Yet they claim that "staffing and funding are lower in our province than the rest of Canada", according to research. Spokesperson Candace Rennick says these are important issues that all in our communities should know about and she adds that talking with people in towns like Renfrew will help make the changes residents need, happen.
