CUPE Local 966, the Ontario Works Human Services Unit, will hold a news conference at 10:00 a.m., Friday, May 4, at 7120 Hurontario Street, Mississauga, to address issues regarding the current strike. 

We want to address the issues around this strike,” said Mary Jo Falle, president of CUPE Local 966. “We must ensure that the residents of the Region of Peel understand that we want to continue bargaining and providing services to the most vulnerable in our community.”

We believe that our unit is being treated differently than the male-dominated locals in the cities of Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga because we are predominantly women and many of our members are racialized,” Falle concluded. “All we want to do is get back to the table and negotiate a fair collective agreement for our members.”

WHERE: 7120 Hurontario Street, Mississauga 

WHEN: 10:00 a.m., Friday, May 4
