P-O-W-E-R! We got the power because we are a collective!

That was the message throughout the 2014 Homecare Summit, held in downtown Toronto March 12 and 13. About 80 homecare PSWs from across Ontario came together to share their work stories, rally around the “Sweet $16” homecare campaign, and learn about the power of collective action.

Our president Sharleen Stewart gave a presentation on the exhausting but important Red Cross strike and the journey towards justice for PSWs. A member leader told us more about the face-to-face meeting with Premier Kathleen Wynne. And we heard from Ontario Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Deb Matthews, who personally thanked homecare workers for services they provide to thousands.
