Schelgal workers are ready to take legal action in the fight for a respectful collective agreement, although the employer is threatened with legal action and enforcement. Unifor Local 302 represents nearly 400 members in the Village of Glendale Crossing in London and Pinehaven Nursing Home in Kitchener and Unifor Local 504 represents nearly 250 members at the Village of Wentworth Heights in Hamilton. These two premises form the Unifor Master Negotiations team with Local 2458 in Windsor. For more information: For any media request, please contact Unifor Communications Representative Hamid Osman at [email protected] or (647) 448-2823 LONDON, ON, 17 February 2020 /CNW/ – Unifor Locals 302 and 504, representing health professionals at Schlegel Villages, will hold member meetings after contract negotiations fail to plan work actions. The union is required to return to the bargaining table as soon as the employer actually commits to oppose under-occupation. However, the employer believes that the best way to address understaffing is to reward workers with “Schlegal Points,” a reward system for the purchase of items. Canada`s budget update indicates a future economic recovery,… “Our members feel frustrated, underestimated and totally despised by the employer,” said Glenn Westoby, President of Local 504. “Schlegel continues to pay below industry standards, although he has repeatedly told the union that he wants to be the leader in the long-term care sector. It is very unfortunate that this feeling is not reflected in the working conditions and remuneration that Unifor members see.¬†Unifor calls on all parties to support the new PND anti-scab law… Unifor is Canada`s largest private sector union and represents 315,000 workers in all major sectors of the economy. The union defends all workers and their rights, fights for equality and social justice in Canada and abroad, and aspires to progressive change for a better future. “Having a reward system to deal with under-occupancy is an insult not only to workers, but also to residents.

Understaffing in LTC homes is a systemic problem and a reward system does not reduce the burden or stress on workers trying to meet the needs of the residents of these facilities,” said McMurphy. Unifor Group insurance is also available to Unifor retirees, spouses, dependent children and staff.
