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!!!
OPSEU Local 166 elected 8 members to represent the members of local 166.
Members from all over the province gathered to lobby our politicians for Developmental Services Day. Some of our local 166 members were able to make it to Queens Park to “Stand Up For Developmental Services” as part of a province wide lobbying effort!!!!
Community Living London, Anago, Middlesex Community Living and Craigwood Youth Services sent members to this years Broader Public Services Conference. Continue reading “Local 166 Unit Stewards In Attendance at the 2013 BPS CONFERENCE”

Dear member of OPSEU local 166 at Craigwood Youth Services:
Please find below the link to the online stress survey.
The survey is being conducted with the help of the OPSEU’s Health and Safety Unit who will be collecting the survey results and analyzing them. Your answers will be kept in confidence by the union and only the group results will be reported to our local.
The survey will identify which specific workplace stress factors negatively affect workers’ health outcomes. The goal is to identify the top three issues and prepare a plan to approach the employer with the goal of addressing the causes of those stressors. Participation is completely voluntary, but the more who participate the stronger the validity of the results will be. I will be sending a set of three reminders to ensure everyone has a chance to participate.
The survey is for your use only – so please do not circulate the link. If you know of anyone who did not get their link please have them contact me directly.
If you have any concerns or questions about the survey please contact me. If accessing the survey electronically is an issue, please let me know.
Thank you for your support,
