Transcare fought to bring justice and dignity to their workplace

The 170 workers at Transcare fought to bring justice and dignity to their workplace throughout their organizing drive, which lasted a few months. These health care workers provide community and home care services in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) including some day programs and services such as Meals on Wheels.These workers had been disrespected on the job continuously, lacked any sort of job security, and were made to feel that if they had any concerns they could walk out the door and find a new job.

“These compassionate people do so much to bring independence and dignity to our loved ones when they need it,” explained President Haggerty. “They now stand united to demand dignity and respect from their employer. And we’re going to help them achieve that.”

In fact, this successful vote marked the 100th victory for non-union workers who have achieved Union representation with UFCW since 2010, when our amazing Organizing Team was formed.
