We stood up for ourselves and stopped our employer from gouging our benefits, says Dawn Trott, CUPE 905 CCAC Unit Chair. This is an important victory for our members we werent prepared to accept concessions.
The 92 members also won wage improvements of 2.75%, 2.5% and 2.75% in each year of the three-year deal. There has been a spike in strike activity over the summer in Ontario, with several employers demanding concessions at the bargaining table. CUPE members are fighting back.
