Chartwell Tiffin votes yes!

April 3, 2017 at 6:07pm

Local 175 would like to welcome our new members from Chartwell Tiffin Retirement Home in Midland who voted to join the Union.

Our members include R.P.N.s, P.S.W.s, Kitchen staff and Housekeeping.

“There were a number of reasons the workers reached out to the union” said Organizing Representative Linval Dixon, “but the main issues were wages and vacations that were below industry average, the cost of their benefits and they currently have no pension plan. Senior staff have been seeing hours cut and there have been terminations given without any rationale.”

Workers also noted job security and favouritism as other reasons for wanting to join UFCW Local 175.

A proposal meeting will be held this week.
