Higher wages for PSWs

The arbitrator came back with legally-binding contracts for the 4,500 homecare PSWs that contained marginal improvements on what they had been offered before the strike. But deeper issues of inequality in working conditions for homecare PSWs had been revealed to the public and the Sweet $16 campaign was launched.

Also as a result of the strike, communities became politically engaged in support of homecare PSWs (1,000+ MPP emails sent), members created an improved public awareness of PSWs, their work, and their issues (1,000+ media hits from Ontario papers, radio stations, and news websites), and SEIU Healthcare got a commitment from government for historic wage raises for over 30,000 workers.
