Negotiations underway for Kimberley Library Workers

Negotiations for a first collective agreement between CUPE Local 440 and the Kimberley Public Library in southeast BC began today, after library workers voted to join CUPE last June.

“Our members are deeply committed to the important community services they provide. They decided to join CUPE to ensure fairness in their workplace and put a formal process in place to address important workplace issues,” says CUPE National Representative Keith Nielson.

Stop the violence against us

Violence against health care workers is greater than in any other sector. In support of Ontario’s 27,000 hospital staff in their ongoing provincial contract talks, hundreds of convention delegates rallied yesterday to call for an end to violence in the health care sector and better protection against workplace violence.
