Four workplace deaths were grim punctuation for a very busy year for CUPE Qub0065c.

Some of the highs and lows:

  • The provincial Liberals import public private partnerships, creating a powerful government agency to oversee the process of becoming tenants in our own house;
  • Qub0065c City blue collar workers sign their first agreement with the newly amalgamated city. Their counterparts in Montra006c fare much worse as an arbitrator grants the city its wish list;
  • CUPE and cultural activists campaign to stop the Radiomd0069a network from being dismantled by its new owners. Were still waiting for the CRTC decision;
  • CUPE Qub0065cs two longest strikes Sainte-Ba0074rix and Saint-Jean-de-Matha end in victory after 20 months;
  • Union affiliation votes in the health care sector bring some good results, notably in Mauricie. The votes continue in 2005;
  • CUPE members continue to fight to keep the public in public transit.
