Lori Morrison, left, and Victoria Szucs hold up a protest sign in front of local MPP Liz Sandals’ office during the noon hour Friday in what their union called a “Picket for Pay Equity.” The Canadian Union of Public Employees organized the picket on behalf of a pay equity award for employees of Community Living Guelph Wellington, who work at residences for adults with development disabilities. In March, a provincial pay equity review body told Community Living Guelph Wellington that it is required to pay both union and non-union employees’ adjustments and back pay covering the past four years. However, the agency has stated that it cannot make these pay equity adjustments within existing funding, a CUPE news release said. More than a dozen employees were at Friday’s protest.
