Respect Us, Protect Us, Pay Us Launch

Dear Brothers, Sisters and friends,

On March 8, CUPE, SEIU, and Unifor health and long-term care workers launched their campaign to demand respect, protection, and adequate compensation for all health care workers: Respect Us, Protect Us, Pay Us. 

Following the overstress of health care resources and failure of Ontario’s long-term care system during the COVID-19 pandemic, health care workers are uniting to demand action from the Ford government.

The campaign launches on International Women’s Day in recognition of the fact that a significant number of health and long-term care workers are racialized women workers subject to low pay, precarious work conditions.

We are asking CUPE health and long-term care locals to take photos of your members wearing the stickers and holding up the posters. We also ask that you use the sticker as your profile image on social media.

Please send your photos to

Download the poster and sticker via the links on this page.
