Maple Ridge workers raise alarm over outsourcing at new community centre

MAPLE RIDGE – Workers for the City of Maple Ridge are raising an alarm over plans to hand over the operation of the soon to be opened Albion Community Centre to an outside third-party. The workers, represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 622, say the City’s own policies are being broken in a move that will threaten services offered at the Community Centre, and will end up costing more for the people of Maple Ridge and the Ridge Meadows region.

The work begins now

Why we need a BC NDP majority government
Welcome to the first edition of Public Employee for the 2020s. It will come as no surprise to regular readers that my first column for the new decade is about politics and how essential I believe political action is to the future of our union. It’s also essential for the broader labour movement and for ensuring progressive policies at all levels of government.

A new report produced for CUPE entitled Influences: Lessons from policy and practices in literacy and essential skills in Canada, 1990-2019, explores the numerous issues dealing with literacy and essential skills and the evolution of these concepts in the past thirty years.

Sisters, Brothers and Friends:

As always, it’s been a busy few months!

I know CUPE members and leaders across the country have been hard at work ensuring their members are well-represented, whether at grievance meetings or at the bargaining table, as well as protecting their interests at city council chambers and provincial legislatures.

Which is why I am grateful that so many of you made the trip to Montréal in October to participate in our 29th biennial National Convention.
