CUPE’s National President Paul Moist will be making a presentation on behalf of Canada’s largest union with a membership numbering more than half a million during the New Democratic Party’s National Convention in Quebec City from September 8 to 10.
His presentation will focus on the detrimental affects of public-private partnerships (P3s) and of contracting out policies by governments – moves that have resulted in the steady erosion of the social safety net which all Canadians have come to depend upon, and the systematic dismantling of a national treasure.
Paul Moist will be available for interviews before and after the Civil Society Forum panel scheduled for Saturday at the Québec City Convention Centre.

CUPE has had a long and proud tradition of involvement in the democratic process with the NDP, and shared concerns on a variety of national and international issues. Health care in Canada is a major area of concern to CUPE’s membership, and to many others across Canada.
CUPE is committed to improving the quality of life for workers in Canada. Women and men working together to form local unions built CUPE. They did so to have a stronger voice – a collective voice – in their workplace and in society as a whole.
