MEDIA ADVISORY: Front line workers at SPRINT Senior Care rally for the future of clients and staff

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 24, 2014) - To express their need and determination for a workplace pension plan, front line workers of SPRINT Senior Care will rally at the agency's Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, June 25, from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., at 1929 Bayview Avenue (CNIB National Office).
