TORONTO, Sept. 30, 2011 /CNW/ - A tentative agreement has been reached
between Ontario's Community Care Access Centres (CCACS) and the Ontario
Nurses Association (ONA), pending ratification.
ONA has units in 10 CCACs and represents approximately 3,000 CCAC
employees. ONA-represented CCAC employees will be voting on the
agreement tonight (September 30, 2011).
Ontario's CCACS are dedicated to providing quality and safe care to
their 600,000 clients who depend on them for clinical and support care.
"The CCACs and their employees are committed to delivering the best
possible care to our clients and their families," said Sandra Coleman
CEO, South West CCAC. We are pleased that the hard work of both
bargaining teams has resulted in a tentative deal that is fair to our
employees and enables us to continue to provide health care and
community-based services that meet the needs of Ontarians," Coleman
Ontario's CCACs help people navigate a complex health care system;
connect people to health care services in their own community; help
clients maintain their independence in their own homes; arrange in-home
health care services; and, support people and their families through
the application and admission process for a long-term care home, if and
when living at home is no longer possible.
