Keep laundry services in-house: CUPE 879

CUPE 879 photo by Victoria Battock, VOCMWe recently learned that Eastern Health plans to move the bulk of laundry services from St. Patrick’s Mercy Home and Glenbrook Lodge. This move will result in a loss of quality control, as well as several good jobs.

This comes as a surprise since Eastern Health has repeatedly said that they have had no problems with the current service and efficiency of the work being done by the in-house staff. They give our members high praise on the work they do.

Members of CUPE 879 held an information picket on Monday, September 30. Read and download a copy of their flyer.
