Hospital-based personal support workers, health care aides and other similar classifications are still waiting for Ontario’s Ministry of Health to flow the $2.00 an hour retention payment announced in the Ford government’s April 2022 budget.
The Ministries of Long-Term Care and Developmental and Social Services have been able to make the payments without any interruption, but not the Ministry of Health. Most hospital based PSWs have not received the salary top-up since the spring.
Help health care workers! Send a message to your MPP demanding that these payments be made immediately by using the e-mail form below.
