TORONTO, June 8 /CNW/ - South Bruce Grey Health Centre is alienating both staff and community as it implements cuts to the four-site hospital in Grey and Bruce counties.
Community and labour groups are calling on the hospital board to listen to community and staff concerns around the importing of reheated frozen food to replace the hospital kitchens, poor labour relations practices, and issues around governance.
Representatives from community and labour organizations will host two press conferences in Durham and Kincardine June 9 to outline their concerns.
Wednesday, June 9
11 am - Durham Legion, Bruce St. N., Durham
