Voices from the front lines - Workers struggle during COVID

 

Sunday, April 11 | 2:00 PM

 

Speakers:

 

Xolisiwe (Connie) Ndlovu is the President of CUPE 7797, and works at Sprint Senior Services, one of the agencies in a composite Local that represents over 600 Personal Support Workers (PSWs) workers. Connie is a PSW herself, and has been involved for close to twenty years in organizing workers in home care. These PSWs are among the lowest paid, struggle for minimal hours, and have a high rate of injury.

 

Peter Votsch is the Vice President – TNG Unit CUPE Local 7797

 

It is becoming increasingly obvious that COVID is being spread through schools at rates much higher than officially announced. Likewise, workplace spread is becoming even more deadly. Yet our politicians and bosses want schools to reopen and for people to go to work. They are only interested in making sure profits keep flowing. Please join this forum with front line workers speaking about the struggle to keep themselves and their fellow workers safe.
