Register for the Water Sector Meeting, October 30, 2011

Dear Sisters and Brothers:

CUPE will hold a water sector meeting at the CUPE National Convention in Vancouver on October 30 from 10 a.m. to noon.

Public water and wastewater services are a human right. This meeting will be an important opportunity for CUPE members to focus on emerging local and global water issues impacted by international trade, privatization, climate change, and worker training, recruitment and retention. 

Delegates will report on CUPE campaigns against water privatization and will consider future action to fight against the corporate control of public water to protect and strengthen public water and wastewater systems.

This meeting is open to all delegate members.

For more information about other sector meetings taking place on Sunday, October 30, or to obtain CUPE National Convention documents, please visit the National Convention webpage.
