2016 is turning into the summer of the strike. Good jobs are under attack all across the province.
We currently have 3 Locals on the picket line:
CUPE 2974 Essex County Library Workers (on strike since June 25)
CUPE 1989 Mississauga Library Workers (on strike since July 4)
CUPE 926 Wilfrid Laurier University (on strike since July 10)
In addition to these Locals, CUPE 2204 Ottawa Y Childcare Workers ratified a collective agreement on July 13 following a 2 day strike.
Some of these workers are fighting deep concessions. Some are fighting hard to make real gains. All of them need our support.
CUPE Ontario has donated $5000 to each Local. We are asking that your Local join us in sending donations to their strike funds. This is urgent, and it can’t wait until summer is over. Information on how to donate to each Local’s strike fund is available on CUPE Ontario’s strike update page.
