3.5 Hours of Long-Term Care
The Health Care Workers Coordinating Committee of CUPE Ontario is teaming up with the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions to take an important message on the road. Long Term Care workers say it is time for action on a minimum 3.5 hrs/day, hands-on care standard. Residents have waited long enough!
Please help to circulate the information about each stop to locals and members in the area. We encourage you to attend the tour stop and join us in our demand to adequately fund health care and implement the promise made by the Liberals many years ago. It's time to care about the seniors in this province – we need a minimum of 3.5 hours of care now!
The provincial government needs to enact a minimum standard of direct hands-on care of 3.5 hours per day, per resident in each and every long-term care. Until the province increases care time by introducing legislated standards, we will continue to advocate for an increase to a minimum of 3.5 hours.
Join our call for the provincial government to make 3.5 hours of direct hands-on care law.
