TORONTO, May 12, 2021 – The Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA) is appalled that the Ford government and for-profit long-term care homes have appealed a recent decision by the Ontario Court of Appeal and have filed the appeal with the Supreme Court of Canada in an effort to deny pay equity maintenance to long-term care home registered nurses and health-care professionals.
The Ontario Nurses’ Association, the RNAO and the Registered Practical Nurses Association of Ontario will recognize this year’s award recipients during a special ceremony on May 12, 2021 at 2 p.m. (EST).
We are proud to recognize and support the diversity of our members and staff, and to join in the fight against discrimination based on an individual’s sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
The Ontario Nurses’ Association’s (ONA) 68,000 members will mark the start of Nursing Week 2021 today. Normally a time of celebration, this year, Nursing Week falls as nurses continue to fight the pandemic under a cloud of anger and frustration after a series of moves by the Ford government that has left them feeling undervalued and disrespected.
To tie in with this year’s Nursing Week theme, we developed the hashtag: #StandInMyShoes. We hope that members take to social media to share their stories about what it really means to be a nurse.
The Ontario Nurses’ Association, on behalf of its more than 68,000 front-line registered nurses and health-care professionals, is again demanding the Ford government immediately exempt them from its unconstitutional wage legislation, Bill 124.
The Ontario Nurses’ Association is calling on the Ford government to act immediately to implement the recommendations in the Long-Term Care-COVID-19 Commission’s final report, released today.
