Dear Sisters and Brothers:

I hope this report finds each of you in good health and spirits.  It is hard to believe that we are almost one-third of the way through 2005!

As usual things have been very busy throughout CUPE since my last report.  There is much happening on the federal front in terms of legislation and other critical issues such as the commitment of $5 billion for child care.

We are also busy with provincial governments throughout Canada and will have elections in British Columbia (on May 17th) and possibly in Nova Scotia where a minority government situation exists.

This report will attempt to highlight both key national and regional issues.  As always,

I would be very pleased to receive feedback from you on the contents of this report or any other matter.

  • Tsunami Relief – CUPE National Pledges $100,000
  • Federal Scene
  • National Political Action Committee
