In QP MLA @RjSigurdson asked about a frustrating delay in getting hard-working Health Care Aides their $2/hour wage top-up that we committed to on April 20.

The delay is being caused by @_AUPE_, the union that represents those workers. 1/3
Our government is providing $21 million per month to contracted continuing care facilities, including funding for the wage top-up that flowed on May 8. Employers started paying it out as announced, on their regular pay cycles, retroactive to April 20. 2/3
Recently the payouts stopped at about 90 facilities because of grievances filed by @_AUPE_, blocking payment to their own members.

The union that represents these staff is blocking the $2/hour wage top-up.

This needs to stop. 3/3
