President Hornick joins NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, CUPE and ONA in Ottawa for news conference against privatized healthcare


OPSEU/SEFPO President JP Hornick joined NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU/CUPE) and the Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA) for a news conference on Monday to call on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to make rebuilding public universal Canadian health care — not funnelling funds and staff to for-profit facilities — a condition on health care funding.

Together, the leaders warned that if Trudeau does not ensure safeguards against Conservative premiers’ for-profit healthcare schemes, the health care staffing crisis will get much worse.
