Ottawa Hospital privatization: 314 jobs brought back

For the last ten years, the Ottawa Hospital had contracted out housekeeping at its General site to a large, foreign-based corporation.  But as of May 13, those 314 housekeeping staff were brought back to work as employees of the Hospital.

CUPE has long raised concerns about the effects of the privatization of housekeeping.  Apparently, hospitals can rethink even long term privatization initiatives.  Congratulations to CUPE Local 4000.   


  1. Doug, your StatsCan link is a dud. Great site though!
