CUPE launches Fix Long Term Care campaign

gmcneil COVID-19 Announcements, Long term care

On May 25, CUPE National launched a national campaign to “Fix Long Term Care”.

Canada’s long-term care system is in crisis.

Our parents and loved ones living in care homes are not getting the care they deserve. It’s time to fix long-term care now!

Underfunding, understaffing and a focus on profit instead of care have been wearing down the system for decades – and it has left us tragically unprepared for the health crisis we’re currently facing.

Four out of five COVID-19-related deaths in Canada have either been residents or staff of a long-term care home – the worst record in the developed world.

We must act now to ensure this never happens again.

We need to make sure that the federal government hears our concerns, in a big way. Please click on the campaign link below to send a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today.
