TORONTO – The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Ontario has called leaders from across the province to an emergency meeting in Toronto on Wednesday, January 25, at the Delta Chelsea Hotel, 33 Gerrard Street West, beginning at 10 a.m.
The purpose of the meeting is to debate and vote on a plan of action to stop Bill 206, the new legislation that changes the way OMERS — the provincial employees’ pension plan — is managed.
Bill 206 is badly flawed legislation and CUPE believes the Liberal government must start over and begin a broad collaborative process with OMERS’ stakeholders.
Media is invited to attend this crucial meeting at 10 a.m. when CUPE Ontario leadership will present details of their position.
Extensive press kits will be available at the door.
At 1:00 p.m., CUPE leadership and members attending the meeting will march en masse to Queen’s Park and hold a rally.
At 3:45 p.m., CUPE Ontario will make its second follow-up submission to the General Government Committee regarding Bill 206 at Queen’s Park.
