  Who We Are

Fifteen Ontario Unifor Locals now represent 27,000 health care workers in various workplaces, and the Unifor Ontario Health Care Council is comprised of elected members from within those areas.

The guiding principles of the Council are:

1. To ensure all levels of government continue to be challenged to provide quality universal public health care and to improve working conditions of Unifor members in hospitals, nursing homes, homes for the aged, ambulance and community health care agencies.

2. To promote the coordination and cooperation of campaigns in the health care industry.

3. To promote and exchange ideas of common interest to health care sector membership including common bargaining issues and/or strategies.

Additionally we meet regularly with the Nova Scotia Health Care Council and we have worked collaboratively with the Unifor Retiree's Council, the Ontario Health Coalition, and the National Union.

The Unifor National Council meet annually three times, with hundreds of elected representatives from across the country. The Ontario Unifor Health Council Executive also convenes three times yearly but may be required to meet more often as needs arise, both in person and via teleconference.
