CUPE Newfoundland and Labrador convention delegates have voted to make division president into a full-time job.
After winning the election for an unprecedented 10th consecutive term, Wayne Lucas said, “Fighting privatization and protecting public services is going to be a full time job. We also want to make sure that working families get their fair share of our province’s newfound prosperity.”
Delegates also voted to fund more book-offs for members involved in campaigns against contracting-out and privatization.
The convention also raised more than $12,000 for locked out Journal de Québec workers, representatives of whom were on hand to tell the convention about their year-long struggle against Quebecor.
