Unifor - Ontario Health Care Council

On Labour Day 2013, we brought together two strong unions, the Canadian Auto Workers Union (CAW) and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union (CEP), to create a new union for a new era.

We formed Unifor as an act of hope, that together we could ensure that good jobs, economic progress, equality and social justice can be achieved for us and for our children.

Unifor is the largest private-sector union in the country, and yet one in every six of our 305,000 members is a public sector worker. Nearly 30,000 members work in health care in hospitals, long-term care facilities, emergency medical services, community services, social services and in home care.

Unifor represents workers in every sector of the Canadian economy, and our diversity is one of our strengths. That means that when we speak about issues that are important for health care, like renewing the national Health Accord, preserving and improving public hospital services, or fighting creeping privatization, we have support from a broad spectrum of Canadians who recognize the value of Medicare. Our entire union thanks you for the work you do and the contributions you make to provide us with a world class health care system.

Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan

The Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP) is a defined benefit pension plan. Our mission is to deliver on our pension promise to our more than 339,000 healthcare workers in Ontario.

As a defined benefit or DB plan, our pension is based on a formula. Members make regular contributions over the length of their career. When they retire, they receive a defined benefit: a monthly income based on how much they earned and how many years they contributed. Once members begin receiving their benefits they receive it for life - they will not outlive their pension.
