Inflation was 3.4% in April but the government has limited our wage increases to 1% for the first 3 years of our contract. But Quebec just signed a deal that gives its health care workers 2% increases in each of the next 3 years plus 1% lump sums in years 1 and 3.
OCHU-CUPE and SEIU will ask our members to hold a workplace sticker day action on June 14 and 21, and a virtual rally June 19 to demand that the wage restraint legislation be lifted, and that we be able to bargain wage increases that at least cover the rising cost of living.
Get your stickers from your local executive.
