Windsor Park staff criticize Algoma U for cuts

November 25, 2008

The union representing workers at the Algoma University-owned retirement residence Windsor Park accuse the university of giving employees the "Third World treatment" following staff and service cuts at the retirement home. CUPE says Algoma is not acting responsibly, and claims the school is reducing hours in order to maximize the $3-million worth of land and businesses, including Windsor Park, that was donated to the university in 2005. In a statement, an Algoma official says there have been no layoffs at the residence and none are planned. CUPE News Release | Soo News | Sault Star
