Fighting for what we believe in, our brothers and sisters at St. Joseph Motherhouse in North Bay, Ont. are on strike demanding better wages and language in their contract that would prioritize them as internal hires.
Our members are seeking a 2 per cent increase, which is the average in the retirement home sector. However, the employer has been unwilling to budge from the 1.1 per cent it has offered.
To our brothers and sisters on the picket line, we are proud of your hard work and dedication in standing up for what you believe in.
If you’re in the area, stand in solidarity on the picket line and amplify our voice.
