Workload is an OH&S issue

Answer

Workload is an Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) issue: At SEIU-West, we know our members face unsafe staffing levels regularly. And we know these insufficient staffing levels contribute to unsafe environments for both staff and those requiring care. That’s why your SEIU-West bargaining team has prioritized workload issues and we are hopeful these efforts will lead to better processes for addressing our heavy workloads.

SEIU-West has many resources to help you address workload at the Occupational Committee (OHC) Level - please email actions@seiuwest.ca if you would like assistance addressing workload at the OHC.
