PSW Day at Queens Park with SEIU

SEIU PSWs visited Queens Park on May 16, speaking with MPPs about workplace issues, challenges and possible solutions. They met over lunch in a reception in the committee room at Queens Park, where Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long Term Care spoke about the value of PSWs.

"Seniors tell me that home is where they want to receive care -- and that's why our government is helping our seniors live independently by investing in more PSW hours. We're making the right choice to expand home care by moving forward with a freeze on doctors' compensation so we can put the needs of patients first."

Home care is vital to the government's efforts to deliver improved healthcare performance with constraining expenditure growth, and that message was delivered loud and clears by our PSWs!

SEIU Local 1 Canada would like to thank all Personal Support Workers for the incredible work they do every day. A special thank you to our PSWs who attended our lobby day and participated in our PSW Day video. You've once again proven that we are indeed stronger together.
