TORONTO – In yesterday’s article, we wrote that during the month of September in Ontario the average waiting times for patients who arrive in the emergency room and need to be hospitalized reached 21.3 hours (data from Health Quality Ontario – HQO).

Caos ospedali: più di 21 ore di attesa in pronto soccorso

TORONTO – Ennesimo record negativo per gli ospedali dell’Ontario: i tempi medi di attesa per i pazienti che arrivano in pronto soccorso e devono essere ricoverati hanno raggiunto, a settembre, le 21,3 ore secondo i dati raccolti da Health Quality Ontario (HQO): un aumento considerevole rispetto ai già lunghissimi tempi medi di attesa registrati ad agosto (20,7 ore) e luglio ( 20,8 ore).

Government-CUPE, difficult negotiations coming up

TORONTO – Although non-teaching staff at Ontario schools have returned to work and negotiations have just resumed, the agreement between the government and CUPE remains a mirage. The parties seem to be still far apart on some key issues. The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which has more than 50,000 members among the education support staff, says it will not accept a “two-tier offer” from the province: an uneven wage increase has been reported as part of the latest offer from the Ford government “We have been clear, an agreement will be made with a substantial lump sum increase – reads a statement released yesterday by the bargaining committee – such an offer would not be  up to what you workers need to ratify an agreement.”

Premier Ford softens the tone: “I want to stop fighting with education workers”

TORONTO – It may seem strange but Doug Ford seems to have laid down the hatchet. “We want an agreement that is fair to students, fair to parents, fair to taxpayers, and fair to workers, particularly low-income workers.” Abandoning the strong tones and swaggering attitude of a few days ago, an almost conciliatory Ford during today’s press conference said that when negotiations with the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) resume, the government will present “a better offer”. The Ontario premier declined to provide specific details about the government’s proposal, but said the offer is particularly good for workers with the lowest wages.”
