NIAGARA REGION – Frank Ventresca, president of CUPE 4156, representing support staff workers with the District School Board of Niagara, will be part of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Ontario’s campaign to have Bill 206, the new legislation that changes the way OMERS — the municipal employees’ pension plan — is managed when he joins a deputation at the second round of public hearings into the Bill at 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday, January 25.

Following a Toronto critical meeting of CUPE leadership from across the province, Ventresca will join other CUPE leaders and legal council at Queen’s Park to make it perfectly clear to the McGuinty Liberals that Bill 206 is fatally flawed and is not acceptable as it now stands.

Ventresca and the other leaders have been called to this mass meeting at Toronto’s Delta Chelsea Hotel to discuss what job action CUPE members across the province will take to stop Bill 206.
