Tell the Ford Conservatives – Don’t Be a Bully

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!

A Note from the President

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.
