We are proud to announce that SEIU Healthcare's short film “Below the Line: Cidalia’s Story” was selected as one of the winners of the London, UK Labour Film Festival global short films competition.
It was screened on Saturday, September 26 before the main documentary film “The Divide,” in front of an audience of film lovers and labour activists alike.
Cidalia, a homecare personal support worker and proud SEIU Healthcare member from Cambridge, Ontario, volunteered to help make the film in 2014 to show how working people like her are still struggling to make ends meet.
The film was instrumental in raising awareness in the public eye about the work that PSWs do and the type of compensation they need to survive in the sector, especially during the “Sweet $16” campaign.
This recognition is for all the members, and demonstrates that when people are encouraged to share their story, it can make a huge impact!
