cupe.ca has launched an online database that tracks more than 500 incidents, past and present, of privatization, contracting out, and public-private partnership.
To check it out, visit http://cupe.ca/www/database
You can view incidents by province, by town, by sector, by local number or by keyword.
We hope this will be a useful tool for members, activists and staff to keep track of what’s going on across the country - successes, failures and lessons learned.
But to make it work, members need to use it and add to it.
Please use the database to look at the information that’s there in your area, and let us know if it needs changing. If there’s something missing, you can add it to the database yourself in a few minutes by filling out an online form.
For more information, please contact Karin Jordan at 613 237 1590
