Standing up for PSWs

In October 2013, 4,500 personal support workers (PSWs) had been in bargaining with their employer Red Cross for months, fighting for fair improvements to their contracts.

It was going nowhere. There was a strike vote, and although members could barely make ends meet, they decided that standing up for themselves for a chance at better pay would be worth it.

See our blog that was updated regularly during the strike with articles and photos from across Ontario as we implored the employer and government to get these PSWs back to work with a fair offer.
