Rawlin workers loss of hours and for assistance!

We, the workers at the Rawlin at Riverbend Memory Care Community have organized a union to fight to save the lives of our residents. Onelife, the company that owns our facility has not properly staffed the facility or provided enough training to safely care for our residents. As a result, 23 residents have died in the last 9 weeks. Only 6 of those deaths were from COVID. This has to stop; we are fighting to make a change not just for ourselves but for our residents.

 

85% of workers signed a petition demanding Onelife acknowledge our union. The company has refused, so we are preparing to strike to be recognized as a union and to save our residents' lives.

 

Union busting

Over the past five days leading up to our strike; management has been bringing in agency caregivers to staff our facility and sending the regular caregivers home to intimidate us! Our caregivers—who already live at the poverty line—have lost hours they need to feed themselves and pay their rent. We have strike support and hardship funds – but they only cover us once the strike starts. 

 

We are asking for the community to help ease the burden of lost hours as we stand up for our residents who are unable to advocate for themselves. Any and all donations that you can spare will go to the workers who have lost hours.
