Our COVID heroes need your help.


COVID-19 has brought systemic shortages in Ontario’s healthcare and long-term care systems to the forefront with tragic consequences. Unifor has joined CUPE and SEIU Healthcare in the ‘Respect Us. Protect Us. Pay Us.’ campaign on behalf of the unions’ 175,000 frontline healthcare workers.

Our COVID heroes need your help.

Workers from all sectors are asked to support the thousands of Unifor healthcare and long-term care members byjoining the ‘Respect Us. Protect Us. Pay Us.’ action to call for the provincial government to properly fund healthcare to provide decent jobs and improved care for Ontarians.

Please join me at this pandemic-safe action, which will take place a day ahead of the release of the Ontario budget. Make your concerns, and horn, heard at a drive-by action at Queen’s Park on Tuesday, March 23.

March 23 - Drive-by ‘Respect Us. Protect Us. Pay Us.’ action at Queen’s Park


10:30 a.m. Participants are asked to assemble with their vehicles at Convocation Hall, University of Toronto 31 King’s College Circle. View Google Maps here.

Drive-by action will then circle Queen’s Park. All in attendance will be required to observe COVID-19 safety measures. Please stay in your vehicles upon arrival and wait for instructions.

You can also show your support for healthcare and long-term care workers online using the #RespectProtectPay and #carenotprofits hashtags.

In solidarity, Naureen Rizvi Ontario Regional Director
