Manitoba Premier Gary Doer praised CUPE yesterday for taking a leadership role on social issues.

CUPE is making a difference on improving public services for Canadians, and we look forward to working more with you,” he said, congratulating the union’s push for a national child care program and our fight against water privatization.

Doer also called on the federal government to fund national programs such as workplace safety and access to low-cost prescription drugs that benefit working people. Manitobans already enjoy such benefits.
