CUPE Ontario president Fred Hahn calls on the provincial government to fix long-term care during a rally Thursday morning (Oct. 8) in Gore Park.

The rally by the CUPE Ontario and Ontario Health Coalition in Hamilton called on the government to improve wages for workers, hire more long-term care workers and institute a minimum number of hours of care per patient.

“Our members have had to be there holding people’s hands (through the pandemic). It’s very emotional for our members,” said Hahn.

 

About 30 people were on hand for event. Other rallies were planned for across the province.
