Municipal workers from the City of Temiskaming Shores voted on Tuesday March 2, 2010 to join CUPE to address issues of job security and fairness.

The economic downturn continues to be a driving force for workers organizing to protect and improve their working conditions,” said Colette Proctor, CUPE organizing representative. “CUPE’s commitment to advance workers’ rights is even more relevant during this recession as we continue to grow and gain workers’ trust.”

The 70 inside and outside workers at Temiskaming Shores will now have access to resources from Canada’s largest union and will have full support and solidarity from the 80,000 municipal workers in Ontario represented by CUPE.
