Sootoday.com is reporting on the unanimous decision by mental health workers at Algoma Public Health to join OPSEU.
“The premier has set his sights on public health, and it’s going to take a strong union to stop him. Every month we have workers joining our family and our newest members at Algoma Public Health are about to find out just how strong OPSEU is,” OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas is quoted as saying.
“Hearty congratulations to these workers for standing together for the care they provide and the people they serve.”
The new OPSEU members work as mental health case managers, community rehabilitation workers, addictions assessment counsellors and addictions case managers in Sault Ste. Marie, Blind River, Elliott Lake, and Wawa.
