Unions have led the charge for shorter work weeks, health and safety legislation, collective bargaining rights, benefit and pension programs, and much more. Now unions are under attack.
In this workshop, we will explore:
• the history of unions in Canada and key moments in CUPE’s 50 year history;
• why unions are under attack;
• who benefits when workers’ rights are weakened;
• what we can learn from our history to help us move forward and build our power at the bargaining table and in the political arena.

In response to the health concerns of our members and staff, CUPE has implemented a Scent-Free Policy at all of our workshops. Scented products such as hair spray, perfume and deodorant can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches. Facilitators and participants are asked to refrain from using scented products while attending our workshops and meetings. Thank you for your cooperation.
