Over 100 people from AOHC members centres were part of the 800 health care workers across the province that signed a statement calling for changes in the laws that regulate employment. They are asking that all full time workers have at least seven paid sick days each year. At a Queen’s Park press conference on November 5th organized by AOHC, the statement was unveiled and Axelle Janzur, Executive Director of Access Alliance spoke about the ways that bad jobs are affecting people’s health. Later the petition was also personally presented to Minister Hoskins.
On November 19th representatives from Toronto CHCs joined other healthcare providers in public education actions.
