We're so proud to introduce SEIU Healthcare's newly appointed Executive Board. The board was elected at SEIU Healthcare’s 2019 Convention in Etobicoke, Ontario, on Tuesday.

Paramedics working for County of Lambton Emergency Medical Services are launching a volunteer run program to provide transportation and care for patients in hospice and palliative care on short outings in their community. The program is being supported by SEIU Healthcare, the union that represents the paramedics, the County of Lambton, and St. Joseph’s Hospice.
SEIU Healthcare, along with the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL), stands in solidarity with the more than 55,000 members of CUPE’s Ontario School Board Council of Unions (OSBCU) who are taking legal job action and have given the five days required notice of moving to a walkout on October 7, 2019.
