Ontario Hospital Workers Who Battled Doug Ford's Wage Controls Receive Salary Boost


Hospital workers, whose unions opposed Premier Doug Ford's Bill 124 wage restrictions, have secured pay raises. The hikes were granted by arbitrator William Kaplan and benefit around 45,000 employees including nurses, support workers, cooks, lab technicians, and dietary aides.
