Nursing home employees on strike in Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on May 18, 2013

Workers at Ottawa Pavilion are on strike.  Members of Laborer’s Local 393 were picketing outside of the nursing home Saturday, day one of the strike.

Officials at Ottawa Pavilion say the nursing home, the union, and a federal mediator met for five hours Friday with no deal.  The company says they’re disagreeing on salaries.

The people living in the nursing home are being cared for by employees still on the job and replacement workers.
