Video: Peterborough’s “improvement plan” not working — staff

Only in Ontario can you eliminate between 250-300 positions caring for people and call it a “hospital improvement plan.”

Professional and support staff at Peterborough Regional Health Centre were joined by members of the local health coalition to speak out September 6 about the state of their hospital after implementation of the plan.

The workers — represented by OPSEU, ONA and CUPE — held a short rally outside of MPP Jeff Leal’s constituency office on the day before the Ontario election. Despite advance warning, Leal was not present.
