Emergency picket outside The Ottawa Hospital this Saturday

Emergency Picket. Riverside Drive, Riverside Campus, Ottawa Hospital. March 4th 9am. Join our action against a new private clinic at the riverside campus of The Ottawa Hospital.

This Saturday, March 4, join CUPE, OPSEU/SEFPO, and labour allies for an emergency picket outside The Ottawa Hospital – Riverside Campus!

The Ottawa Hospital has secretly struck a deal to allow a surgeon-run, private corporation to perform surgeries on Saturdays in its operating rooms at the Riverside Campus, and poach hospital staff to work these surgeries, instead of extending its own operating hours to meet the demand for care.

We have the physical infrastructure to perform surgeries in our public hospitals, but we need to hire and retain the necessary staff to run our operating rooms instead of selling off these publicly-funded spaces to for-profit companies!

  • Saturday, March 4
  • 9:00 A.M.
  • 1967 Riverside Drive, Ottawa
    (Ottawa Hospital Riverside Campus)

Will you be there?
