CUPE EQUALITY STATEMENT

Union solidarity is based on the principle that union members are equal and deserve mutual respect at all levels. Any behaviour that creates conflict prevents us from working together to strengthen our union. As unionists, mutual respect, cooperation and understanding are our goals. We should neither condone nor tolerate behaviour that undermines the dignity or self-esteem of any individual or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive environment. Discriminatory speech or conduct which is racist, sexist, transphobic or homophobic hurts and thereby divides us. So too, does discrimination on the basis of ability, age, class, religion, language and ethnic origin

Fraser Institute—still wrong

BURNABY - If it's mid-January it must be time for another so-called "study" from the right-wing Fraser Institute urging the BC Liberals to slash pay and benefits for public sector workers and celebrating the low-wage, low-benefit economy that’s emerging after 16 years of BC Liberal mismanagement.

The strike vote was held over two days. The union is happy with the results.

Members of CUPE 1189, representing administrative employees and by-law enforcement in the City of Owen Sound, have given an extremely strong mandate for their union to take strike action to defend against the severe cuts proposed by the city.

98% of the local membership turned out for the vote, with only two members voting against authorizing a strike mandate.

Unions file labour practice complaint against NSHA, IWK

The Health Care Bargaining Council today made a formal bargaining complaint with the Labour Board against the Nova Scotia Health Authority and the IWK.

Bargaining between the Nova Scotia Council of Health Care Unions and the NSHA and IWK has stalled because the employers are refusing to table proposals for three crucial benefits in the new collective agreement. The affected benefits are sick leave; health and life benefits plans; and pay plan maintenance (the process that evaluates whether people are properly paid for the work they do).

University of Guelph workers overwhelmingly endorse strike action

Members of Local 1334 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE 1334) which represents trades, maintenance and service workers at the University of Guelph, have voted overwhelmingly in favour of taking strike action in a vote completed yesterday.

93% voted in favour of authorizing the union to take strike action if they cannot reach an agreement with the university administration. The major bargaining issues are job security and the proposed contracting out of cleaning services for three buildings on campus.
