As the New Brunswick election moves into the final days, CUPE is stepping up the pressure on key issues such as the toll highway and the rights of casual workers. Through news conferences, print and TV ads and a householder in key ridings, CUPE is working to ensure that voters are equipped to grill candidates on these issues.

Buoyed by Elizabeth Weirs triumph in the televised leaders debate, NDP candidates are gearing up their efforts in the final week of the campaign. Eight CUPE members are running for seats in the Legislature including Marilyn Young of CUPE 2464 in Carleton, Heather Patterson of CUPE 821 in Tantramar, Ken Wilcox of CUPE 813 in Saint John Kings, Terry Mullin of CUPE 865 in Miramichi Centre, Amy Dunham of CUPE 2464 in Victoria-Tobique, Percy Ward of CUPE 813 in Grand Bay-Westfield, Sheila Moore of CUPE 908.1 in Woodstock and Phyllis MacLean of CUPE 2464 in Grand Lake.

Special congratulations to Local 2464, representing 68 nursing home workers at the Mill Cove Home, where three CUPE members are running as candidates and Local 813, representing Saint John General Hospital Employees, with two.
