Strike deadline extended for Black Creek Community Health Centre workers

The strike deadline for OPSEU/SEFPO Local 5117, representing workers at Black Creek Community Health Centre, has been extended as mediation talks continue between the bargaining team and the Employer.

The original deadline of 12:01 a.m. on June 11 will be extended to 5:00 p.m. on June 11. The extension of the strike deadline will allow the two parties to continue discussions in the coming hours.

Mediation between OPSEU/SEFPO Local 5117’s bargaining team and Black Creek Community Health Centre began at 10:00 a.m. on June 10.

The community health care services provided by the members of Local 5117 is vital to the Jane and Finch and Black Creek community, which faces significant health inequities. The bargaining team remains optimistic that the employer will do the right thing and come to the table with an offer that shows respect for Black Creek’s workers so that they can keep providing care to their community.
