Between visits to striking Family and Children’s Services workers in Guelph, and Toronto Public Library workers currently in bargaining, CUPE National President Mark Hancock found time to meet with another CUPE local facing what looks to be a difficult round of collective bargaining.

Accompanied by Ontario Regional Director Linda Thurston-Neeley, Brother Mark met with the bargaining committee of CUPE 1750, representing workers at Ontario’s Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), to discuss the current status of negotiations and the challenges the local is currently facing at the bargaining table.

The local’s leadership, Hancock and Thurston-Neeley discussed a strategic plan that includes a tour of work site locations with their members across the province to communicate with their over 3,500 members and CUPE will be supporting the local through this challenging round of bargaining.
