Let’s Protect Front-line Workers Caring for Seniors

Currently in Ontario, retirement home workers don’t have workplace insurance to protect them through the WSIB and are left vulnerable if they are hurt or contract an illness on the job. Like so many other front-line workers during this pandemic, retirement home workers deserve these important health and safety protections as they care for our loved ones. We are calling on the Ontario government to extend the necessary protections to these healthcare heroes through the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act.

The government has the power to support more front-line retirement home workers right now. Join us in asking Ontario’s politicians to work for our province’s front-line care providers. Tell them to extend WSIB coverage to those who need it the most, today!

Worker Protection for Those Who Need It Most is an initiative of CLAC, an independent, all-Canadian labour union founded on the belief that people, businesses, and work communities flourish when workplaces are based on cooperation and mutual respect.
