On October 25 VOTE for Local 101 Executive Assistant

Michelle Sterling

Working for the City of London in the Social Service area for 18 years has lead me to develop skills and to know the dynamics with working with different people. I lead with compassion and integrity. Taking an active leadership role on the picket line as a picket captain to assisting members as a union steward has provided me the experience to know how to get things done

America Needs Unions

An article written by the Detroit news by Brandon Brzys is a really good read and makes sense.

Column: America needs Unions

“Too many working moms and dad are struggling in today’s economy and don’t feel like they can ever get ahead. Too many Americans (and Canadians)  don’t have the power to negotiate a fair wage for honest work.”

Labour Day and Picnic

Labour Day is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers. Having a union on your side makes your job and your workplace safer and fairer. You get paid better and are more likely to have benefits that help you balance work with life at home. Workers in unions are an important part of the local community and economy because that’s where they spend their paycheques. Their incomes support local businesses (who create local jobs) and bolster the local tax base, which supports public works and community services that add to everyone’s quality of life. When unions stand up for fairness, they raise the bar for everyone. Many of the things first won by unions are enjoyed by all workers today – minimum wages, overtime pay, workplace safety standards, maternity and parental leave, vacation pay, and protection from discrimination and harassment.

CUPE Local 101 is affiliated with the London District Labour Ciuncil. Please join us on September 3, 2017at Thames Park for the annual Labour Day Picnic hosted by the London District Labour Council from 12 pm until 4 pm.
