HEU's letter-writing campaign to support ALL health care workers was successful!
More than 12,000 HEU members sent letters asking for equal and fair treatment and support of all health care workers – and government listened.
Today, May 19, 2020, Finance Minister Carole James announced that health care and community social services workers would receive a lump sum Pandemic Payment based on about $4 an hour for a 16-week period beginning March 15.
With very few exceptions it will benefit ALL health care and community social services workers. Find out more details here.
