OPSEU members from all over the provibce have been expressing their disappointment with Chartwell Retirement Residences. While posting excellent profits, paying their executives millions of dollars in salaries and compensating their board members with nearly twice as much money as they pay their employees… this employer refuses to budge and move some classifications above minimum wage.
OPSEU Local 166 has one of Chartwell’s locations in its group of bargaining and we have been increasing this unfairness to tge media and through information pickets… stay tuned for more details…
It was another exciting Convention in 2019. Presidential elections, special guests, some heated debates, problems with the new voting devices combined with the united anger towards Doug Fords agenda, made for a unique convention.
The negotiating team representing the OPSEU members of Craigwood Youth Services Local 166 met with the employer to exchange demands and have 4 dates scheduled to discuss the demands. Stay tuned for details….

This round of bargaining was very difficult for the team but they remained united on their demands.
