Successful Information Picket Draws Attention To Greedy Employer

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…

2nd Annual Local 166 BBQ A GREAT SUCCESS

Nearly 200 members and their families came out to enjoy the great weather at East Park for the 2nd annual Local 166 BBQ!
The weather was perfect for a fun day at the waterpark .  The park provided a great opportunity for members to kick back and get to know eachother a little better as everyone enjoyed some great food along with everything that East Park had to offer on a great summer afternoon.

OPSEU Members Advocating for Better Services

Developmental Workers across the Province help Block Walks to speak to the crisis in the Sector.  All three parties agree there is a crisis but no one can up with a plan to fix it.  There are currently 20,000 people on the waitlists for services.  Last week a mother took her daughter to a Ministers office to abandon her own child….that is what parents have to do in order to receive services in this sector.  We can afford to care….dignity is not optional!!!
