Unifor welcomes 170 new members from St. Andrew’s Terrace long-term care

April 30, 2024


Workers at St. Andrew’s Terrace Long Term Care Community in Cambridge, Ont., have chosen Unifor as their voice in the workplace.

This new addition brings 170 workers from various classifications, including personal support workers (PSW), cooks, environmental workers, dietary aides, maintenance staff, and life enrichment personnel.

The campaign for unionization began in Feb. 2024, driven by the workers’ desires for improved job security, better working conditions, fair wages, and enhanced benefits and pension plans.

Their collective voice was clearly heard on April 11, 2024, when they voted overwhelmingly in favour of joining Unifor.

As Unifor prepares to negotiate a collective agreement, the union remains committed to ensuring that the concerns of our newest members are addressed, and that the workplace becomes a model of fairness and equity.
