Flemingdon Health workers vote Union Yes!Welcome and congratulations to the workers at Flemingdon Health Care in Toronto on voting YES!

They are now members of Local 175. Workers cited wages, job security, benefits and favouritism as their reasons for contacting the union.

“Contract employees worked for years with no permanent positions” said union organizer Amy Tran “Some employees were not receiving wage increases, benefits had been clawed back and there was favouritism going on in this workplace.”

Our new members at the health centre work as social workers, community health care workers, intake workers, childminders, registered dieticians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, chiropodists, outreach workers, medical receptionists and IT support.

In health care facilities, it is the front-line workers who shoulder the responsibility in caring for patients. Find out why Health Care workers benefit from belonging to our Union!
