  • July 6, 2014 - Stand Up for Fairness
    The gains made through bargaining benefit all Canadians. Unions help create fairness and speak up for the rights of all Canadian workers. But our ability to do our job is being threatened by Liberal and Conservative legislation. You can help protect your rights by getting involved in your union. The first step is to sign your CUPE pledge card.

    Every gain CUPE and other unions make have a ripple effect on the rights of other workers. Unions work hand in hand with others in political arenas to bring about positive change, including human rights laws, public education, universal health care, the Canada Pension Plan, social assistance and unemployment insurance.

    Our members and our union are strong advocates for the public services we all rely on. Good union jobs contribute to the economic well-being of your family and your community. Union gains have brought all workers:

    -The 40-hour work week
    -Parental leave
    -Health and safety laws

    Do you believe in the importance of having the right to Collectively Bargain? Are you interested in helping us strengthen CUPE 966 by engaging our own members? Please email cupe966info@gmail.com if you would like to participate in our Stand Up for Fairness Campaign.
