We’ve scheduled bargaining meetings for March 11 and 12 and stand firm on the expectation that our members are valued the same as our coworkers at Millrise Place, another Retirement Concept’s site, and receive compensation in line with theirs.
We hope the employer is prepared to take this proposal seriously. All seniors’ health care workers play a crucial role in delivering quality care. We work together, so we can give residents the support they deserve, just as we work together to create a culture of equality in the workplace.
To recap, this is how the employer’s last set of monetary proposals for your collective agreement compare to the ones they agreed to give Millrise Place AUPE members:
- By 2019 our HCA and LPN members will be paid up to 5.5-per-cent less than the same classifications at Millrise over the same period of time.

We will keep you up to date on any progress or changes at the table. Thank you for your perseverance and continued support.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact one of us –we’re here to support you and keep you informed.
