Let Us Bargain Fair Wages

Your hospital bargaining team started negotiating your next collective agreement with the Ontario Hospital Association last month, but Ontario hospital workers face an uphill battle to achieve the improved contract you need and deserve.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we know you are burning out, working short-staffed, and earning wages that don’t reflect your hard work and sacrifice. You deserve so much more, but sadly the government, the OHA and your employer are refusing to address the critical issues you are facing.

Before your bargaining team returns to the table in September, we need you to make your voices heard by joining us and demanding change at your local Respect Us, Protect Us, Pay Us Hospital Rally.

Date: Wednesday, Aug 11, 2021
Time: 02:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Location: Cambridge Memorial Hospital 10-12
Address: 700 Coronation Blvd, Cambridge, ON N1R 3G2

Not able to attend or eager to take action right away?

Click the button below to send a pre-written letter to 17 hospital CEOs across Ontario, including yours, urging them to support our fight to have Bill 124 repealed and reward hospital workers with the fair contract you need and deserve.

To achieve a fair contract that rewards you for your hard work and sacrifice, we need all hospital workers to step up, make their voices heard, and demand the respect, protection, and pay you deserve.

Bill 124 is not allowing your bargaining team to negotiate a fair collective agreement. After working 18 months in a pandemic, instead of being rewarded, you are forced to bargain below inflation wage increases, while also limiting your ability to negotiate much-needed benefit increases, such as mental health supports.

Is this how the Ford government treats the heroes of healthcare?

We encourage you to invite your family and friends as we safely rally. The more people that attend, the stronger our message will be. At all times, please practice social distancing and be safe.


On Friday, September 10, before we are back at the bargaining table on September 13 to 17, SEIU Healthcare and OCHU-CUPE are organizing a province-wide union action to show your employers and the Ford government that we are ready to FIGHT!
