CUPE premiered a new documentary today at the CUPE New Brunswick Convention. Through a series of in-depth interviews with members, Bargaining Forward chronicles the pivotal 2021 public sector strike in New Brunswick, capturing the crucial events that led to the successful province-wide job action.

Bargaining Forward is not just a historical record—it’s a catalyst for ongoing change,” said CUPE New Brunswick President Stephen Drost. “This documentary underscores the powerful impact of our collective action, inspiring labour movements across Canada to continue the fight for fair working conditions.”

As CUPE members tackle multiple challenges in the workplace, Bargaining Forward highlights the power of working together. The documentary will be available soon on
