200 more healthcare workers join the IAM in Ontario

The 200 nursing staff of Mackenzie Health Long Term Care in Richmond Hill voted overwhelmingly in favour of joining the IAM Union. “Only 2 employees voted against getting the Union”, noted District 78 organizer Rootisha Rampat Sukhu. “The workplace leaders worked tirelessly to get their co-workers signed up and held them together”, Rootisha further explained.

The good work that IAM Union District 78 is doing on behalf of healthcare workers is helping organizing efforts in the sector. IAM District 78 represents thousands of healthcare workers throughout Ontario in long term care, retirement homes, additions centres and home care. The IAM also represents healthcare workers in Alberta.
