Voices from the Frontlines - Healthcare
We have hit our maximum number of registrants to participate in the Zoom webinar. You are still welcome to join us via Facebook Live!
The COVID-19 pandemic is a historic moment, and workers are being seen with a new reverence and respect. We want to make sure we capture our members’ stories, to make sure no one forgets the sacrifices they are making. That’s why Labour Council is producing Voices from the Frontline, a 4-part panel series where we pick a theme each week and talk directly to workers on the frontline.
Each event will feature frontline workers from a given sector (healthcare, service sector, public sector, and social service sector). We’ll be asking them questions such as: What are they seeing on the frontline? Do they feel supported? Why are they doing this work? How is their family dealing with it? And, what kind of toll has this taken on them? Then, we’ll hear from labour leadership about challenges facing the sector as a whole as a result of the pandemic.
The series will be a window into the world of our essential workers: a great way for cross-sectoral learning and building solidarity within our movement.
