Dear Sisters and Brothers:
This quarterly reporting period has been a very busy one for our union. Ten Division Conventions have been held. We are very busy on the collective bargaining front, and as always, there are a host of campaigns right across Canada.
On the political front, the federal scene has dominated the news. In British Columbia, the NDP stormed back in the May 17th election, increasing from 2 to 33 seats in the 79-seat BC legislature.
During all of this, CUPE activists and staff have continued to work very hard on behalf of our members.
The purpose of this report is to capture the key highlights of our union’s activities over this period.
This report covers the following topics:
- Federal Political Scene
- CUPE National – Strategic Initiatives
- CLC Convention
- Collective Bargaining
- Provincial Division Conventions
- Closing Thoughts
