Marianna was a tireless Union Activist for CUPE Local 101, CUPE and other Unions as a whole. She was our local Pesident at one time. She also held many other roles and even worked at our National Office in London for a period of time.
We all owe her a big thank you and our respect for representing us all.
U5 is an employee resource group dedicated to helping all employees with under 5 years of service be successful in our organization. We are pleased to support them in spreading the word to bring as many U5ers together to meet new people, eat food, play games, win prizes, learn more about U5 and tell them how they can help you succeed with the City of London.
The event is open to all City employees with under 5 years of service (U5’s) as well as those who want to support their colleagues (U5 Allies). If you are interested in attending, please RSVP below.

The OMERS Sponsors Corporation (SC) is currently considering a plan to modify the 100%, guaranteed indexing benefit that exists in the OMERS plan text. CUPE Ontario members, who are also members of the OMERS Pension Plan, are letting the Board of the OMERS SC know how important the guarantee of 100% indexing is for their pension plan.
Send a letter today and let the Board know how important guaranteed indexing at OMERS is to your retirement income security.
Are you retiring? Do you have a special birthday coming up? Are you graduating? Do you have an upcoming run you would like to tell us about or any other amazing achievement?
Let us know, send us a picture with your name and your occasion and we will post it as long as it is website friendly.
We would love to hear from our members.
