UNIFOR Lobby
at Queens Park
for Long Term Care

Did you know that in many long term care facilities, personal support workers
have only six minutes in the morning to prepare residents for breakfast?

How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?  Residents in long-term care
facilities in Ontario only get 6 minutes. This means that residents in long term care
facilities aren’t getting the care they need and workers are rushed off their feet.

Lobbying for 4 hours of direct care per resident, per day in long term care
