UFCW Canada Stands in Solidarity with Ontario Nurses

Toronto –  On February 23, UFCW Canada marched in solidarity with the Ontario Nurses Association at their all-out picket actions across the province.

Ontario’s 60,000 front-line hospital nurses and health-care professionals – members of the Ontario Nurses’ Association – are negotiating a new contract with their employers, the Ontario Hospital Association.

The quality of health care nurses and health professionals provide is directly linked to their working conditions. We support ONA’s demands for:

  • Safe staffing.
  • Better pay.
  • Better working conditions.

Investing in nurses and health professionals is the best way to improve access to timely, safe and quality hospital care. Unless conditions change, we will continue to see nurses leaving the profession, leading to worse nurse-to-patient ratios and a lower quality of care.
