Brought to you by the USW District 6 Political Action Committee.

WHAT: Steelworkers Talk Politics – Focus on Long-term Care

WHEN: Tuesday, August 24, 7:00 p.m. (EDT) online

WHO: All Steelworkers Welcome


Steelworkers are active in politics to have a positive impact on our workplaces, our communities and in our lives. During the pandemic we can’t gather in person, so let’s get together online.

Join us on Tuesday, August 24 to hear from:

  • Sara Singh, MPP Brampton Centre, Deputy Leader of the Official Opposition NDP and critic for long-term care
  • Audra Nixon, Personal Support Worker (PSW) and President of the District 6 Health Care Workers Council

Join our guests online in an open discussion about the problems and solutions in the long-term care sector including:

  • Why is it mostly women and racialized workers who work in long-term care?
  • Why are these workers essential but undervalued?
  • How can we attract, train and retain staff to the sector?
  • How can we prioritize better care for seniors in not-for-profit long-term care facilities?
  • What can politicians and governments do to improve seniors care?

Register to receive a meeting link.

We hope you’ll join us.

In solidarity,
Briana Broderick and Seppo Vataja
USW District 6 Political Action Committee Co-ordinators
