It has been over 30 years since the murder of 14 young women at Polytechnique Montréal (December 6, 1989). This act of violent misogyny shook our country and led Parliament to designate December 6 as The National Day of Remembrance & Action on Violence Against Women. As we mourn their loss and remember their lives, we reaffirm our commitment to fight the hatred that led to this tragedy, and the misogyny that still exists today.
This Monday, November 28, join us for a rally from 11 AM – 2 PM at the intersection of Forsyth Ave. N & Sterling St. at McMaster University.
We’ll be joined by Fred Hahn, President of CUPE Ontario, and Yolanda McClean, Secretary-Treasurer of CUPE Ontario.
Together, we can show the entire university community and the university administration that the work of these TAs and RAs is important and that their jobs need to be good jobs

The Ford Conservatives are using legislation to impede workers’ right to free and fair collective bargaining. The use of the Notwithstanding Clause to pass Back-to-Work legislation, is an attack on all workers in Ontario. If he gets away with it, all other workers will face the same threat: contracts imposed by law instead of free collective bargaining. Show your solidarity for striking CUPE Ontario Education Workers by engaging in the actions below!
Good day 101, I am going to share my thoughts and choices for Council, Mayor and Trustees. I have had many ask my thoughts on this subject and in a way to best support you, our local, I decided to prepare this.
My choices are based on my knowledge as well as interviews I have had with some individuals. I have to be honest there are some great people running for these positions and in many races, I could have chosen a different person. In the end, whomever is elected, I look forward to working with any of you and thank each and every person who decided to run for an elected position. It is not easy putting yourself out there in the public eye and facing the scrutiny of so many.
Thanks to all of the candidates and our membership for their engagement. This is one of the few opportunities where we have the chance to choose our bosses and the people who will lead our city forward.
