CUPEs Federal Election Strategy calls for CUPE members to get involved and actively engaged in what is likely to be the most significant campaign ever.
The basic element to our election strategy will be to run an issue-based campaign, bringing to the forefront CUPE issues, particularly the privatization of public services. To this end, CUPE will continue to participate in various coalitions and CLC efforts to raise public interest and concern about the issues of special importance to our members. We will also direct volunteers to priority NDP campaigns.
Each region has been asked to identify a staff election coordinator who will work with all the appropriate CUPE structures and provide assistance to any political action coordinators in their region.
