Toronto (05 April 2018) — On April 7, developmental service workers who are members of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU/NUPGE) will be holding rallies to raise the awareness of the difficulties in the sector.

Communities rallying across Ontario are

  • Kingston at 191 Portsmouth Ave.
  • Thunder Bay at 179 Algoma St.
