Simons questions loss of health care workers
Powell River Sunshine Coast MLA Nicholas Simons says he’s still trying to get answers about why Sunshine Coast workers lost their jobs in a “contract flip” at Vancouver Coastal Health.
Compass Group recently won the contract for cleaning services at VCH sites, including Sechelt Hospital.
Simons says people who worked for the old company were told they could get work with the new contractor.
But Simons says the numbers he was shown after a recent meeting indicate 25% of the workers were not rehired.
Simons says he plans to raise his concerns when the Legislature returns in a couple of weeks.
