About 35 CUPE members and Staff attended the annual CUPE Municipal Employees Conference in Elkhorn, Manitoba last week.
The delegates received reports on their pension fund conditions, changes to the Workers Compensation Act, and the new water and wastewater operation certification that has come into effect recently. They also discussed and planned for the municipal elections coming next year.
As members of CUPE 1897 are on strike in the Turtle Mountain School Division, the delegates also spent an afternoon on the picket line in solidarity.
More information on the Municipal Employees Committee is available from the CUPE Mantiboa Regional Office.
