    Paramed Workers: Important Vote Information

    UNION VOTE: TUESDAY, JULY 20

    Paramed workers have overwhelmingly chosen to vote for SEIU as their union of choice. Home care workers across Ontario are organizing with SEIU because they are tired of working long hours for low wages without paid travel time or benefits. The only way to make changes in your workplace and across the home care system is by joining a union.

    Beware of Management Lies, Threats and Bribes

    Why do employers fight so hard to keep the union out? Because they are afraid of the powerful force that unionized homecare workers can be. They know they will not be able to control us because we will have a say. They are also worried that they will have to spend more money in wages and benefits so homecare workers can have a fair share of the pie.

    Yes, it’s about POWER and MONEY, and management will lie, threaten and bribe to keep both.

    Employers always start their own campaign as we begin to form our union. In the coming days expect a lot of attention from Paramed. They will send letters to our homes, they will blast our phones with messages, and they will have mandatory in-services to try and intimidate us by communicating lies about the union.

    Click here for a list of answers to some of the questions you might have as management tries to confuse us.
