Locked Out!

Cold Lake Workers Standing Up for Quality Care

Holiday traditions were disrupted for 40 Points West Living Cold Lake seniors care workers who have been braving the cold on the picket line since their employer locked them out at 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 16, 2016. They are standing up for a fair contract that addresses serious concerns including short-staffing, scheduling and training that are impacting the quality of care for residents at their workplace.

Their resolve has shone a light on the many problems at Points West Living facilities and is also exposing the deeper crisis in Alberta’s seniors care system that allows for-profit operators to pocket public funds with no transparency or accountability. The outcome of their struggle could help to raise standards for many more seniors care workers across the province as well broaden the call for quality care for all Alberta seniors.

Let Points West Living and government representatives know that this situation is unacceptable and add your voice to the growing number calling for quality seniors care and fairness for seniors care workers.
