Hospital workers to join rally in Ottawa
Three busloads of local hospital workers will be heading to Ottawa early Friday morning to attend a rally calling for better provincial funding for hospitals.
Approximately 150 hospital staff from Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC), represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE 1974), will join hundreds of other hospital workers from across Ontario for a noon rally at Ottawa’s Montfort Hospital.
The local workers include hospital nurses, cleaners and clerical staff.
The rally is organized by the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU/CUPE), CUPE’s hospital division in Ontario.
