Join ONA Local 75 and Local 34 for an Isolation Pay and Sick Pay Phone Zap!
March 24, 2021
Thursday April 8
3:30 pm – 5 pm
Nurses and health-care professionals continue to be at risk of contracting COVID-19. There is no end in sight to this pandemic and its variants. Routinely, you and your coworkers are exposed to confirmed and suspected cases of the virus. If you don’t have symptoms, many workers are unable to access pay for self-isolation. Some employers are paying but this may end because of the lack of guaranteed funding. When part-time and casual nurses and health-care professionals get sick with COVID-19, they don’t have access to paid sick days. Workers Compensation is a complicated process, coverage is often disputed, and payments delayed. Employment Insurance coverage is not enough. No nurse or health-care professional should have to experience personal economic hardship for caring for their patients.
ONA Local 75 and Local 34 are hosting a Phone Zap on isolation pay and paid sick days. All ONA nurses and health-care professionals are invited to join from bargaining units and locals across Ontario to take action together where you will call and email the Ford Cabinet and opposition party leaders to demand isolation pay and paid sick days now!
What is a Phone Zap?
You will need access to a telephone and a computer. You will be given scripts to call and email MPPs to demand isolation pay and paid sick days for nurses and health-care professionals. Training will be provided in the first thirty minutes and we will take action together for the next hour.
