Yesterday, the Ontario Government introduced legislation that would acknowledge that PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder) is work related. This is a significant moment for SEIU Healthcare members. If passed, this legislation would allow first responders (including SEIU Healthcare Paramedics) who suffer from PTSD to be eligible for WSIB.
SEIU Healthcare Paramedics have been strategically working with our partners and the government to raise awareness for this serious issue.
Proud SEIU Healthcare members, Joe Emilio, Brian MacDonald and Doug McGirr were present for the announcement.
