After a very strong public relations campaign, attendance at the morning MEOC meetings, direct conversation with policy advisors of the premier, support letters from the Ontario Medical Association, Ontario Association of Pathologists, and Unions, we were still not included in the Temporary Pandemic Pay initiative. We have been advised that this was a political decision. There were 375,000 healthcare workers approved for TPP, but several other regulated health care groups were also excluded (e.g. MRTs and physiotherapists). Our CEO provided a full explanation for members at our Summer Town Hall in late June.
