Local 175 represents over 3,000 workers in the Health, Office & Professional Employees (HOPE) sector of Ontario. These workplaces, including retirement and nursing care homes and community care facilities, employ some very compassionate and hardworking individuals.
Our membership base in this sector continues to grow each year as more and more health care providers realize the benefits of belonging to a union in such a physically and emotionally draining line of work.
We’ve made great strides for our members. Not only do they have improved wages, benefits, and a grievance/arbitration procedure, but we protect their health and safety on the job too! Things like anti-violence and harassment language, safety engineered needles and using assistive devices for moving patients are only some of the ways we ensure our members have a safe and healthy work environment each and every day.
If you work at a health care facility (or know someone who does) and would like to speak with someone about what it means to unionize, please contact our Organizing Department
or you can call 1-800-565-8329 (905-821-8329). All communication is kept confidential.
