The global trade union assembly, Pandemic and Beyond: Workers Organizing for a Public Future, is a forum to strategize about issues linked to the pandemic including public services, climate, finance and labour rights, and to develop proposals that transform our post-COVID world.

CUPE members can sign up for these free, multilingual virtual meetings to participate in real time, or watch the archived meetings afterwards.

The series of two-hour virtual meetings kicked off on July 9 at 7 a.m. EST with an opening assembly. Sessions resume August 20, and the assembly wraps up on September 10, 2020.

Check out the full program, and the list of unions supporting the project.
