Many of you may have heard today that Government has finally recognized the collective voices of the leadership teams and the labor movement in long term care that the CCA staff are underpaid and deserve better wages.
The Premier announced today, Feb. 9th 2022, that effective tomorrow CCAs will receive an immediate wage increase of approximately 23%. The top scale for a CCA will now be approximately $48,419 per annum.
This is a milestone to celebrate. More work needs to be done to make working and living in long term care better! But for now… we pause and celebrate the wonderful news for our CCAs!!
