Nearly 3,000 home and community health-care workers hit the chilly picket lines across Ontario Friday as CEOs, managers and administrators stepped up to the front lines.
Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) workers voted to strike on Thursday evening after negotiations between the Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA) and the CCACs broke down over wages. All but one of the CCAC catchment areas with representation by ONA voted to strike.
