|Massey Centre for Women Rally - Tuesday July 6th 3pm - REminder
Please come out in support
Now that the G20 has left town, let’s get down to talking about maternal health in the city of Toronto.
Workers at the Massey Centre for Women on Broadview Avenue have been on strike for 67 days!
They are members of SEIU Local 1.
This incredible group of workers cares for some of Toronto’s youngest and most vulnerable mums. Health outcomes across the board are improved for the mums and babies born at the Massey centre.
I know I’ve written many of you about this group of workers during this strike. Unfortunately, we are only a little closer to a settlement now than the last time I wrote.
We are having a RALLY & BBQ to support these workers next week. TUESDAY JULY 6th at 3pm till 5. The rally will be at the centre which is at 1102 Broadview Avenue in the South-East corner of Toronto.
It is crucial at this point to let these workers know they are not struggling alone.
Despite their contract being expired more than a year now, management is trying to impose the McGuinty government’s wage freeze!
They should not be forced to pay for the economic crisis~!
Teen mums and their babies are being left to find their own care. Many are going without.
We need to get this resolved.
There are further details about the strike at:
and a facebook event and group at:
