For the first time in its 50-year history, Quebec’s Common Front has endorsed job action outside of the province. CUPE Quebec Union Leaders will be at Queen’s Park to protest the Ford government’s Bill 28 and to show solidarity with front-line education workers.

CUPE education workers in Ontario began job action in protest of Bill 28 on November 4 with more than 10,000 bringing their message to Queen’s Park. Common Front represents 420,000 members. Their solidarity adds to the messages of unity already expressed from the Quebec labour movement, including open letters of support from  Syndicat du personnel professionnel de l’Éducation de Chaudière-Appalaches, Syndicat des enseignantes et enseignants des Laurentides, Syndicat de l’enseignement du Saguenay, Syndicat du soutien scolaire de l’Outaouais, Syndicat de l’enseignement de la Côte-du-Sud, La Fédération des syndicats de l’action collective, Syndicat du personnel de soutien des Trois-Lacs, Syndicat de l’enseignement du Bas-Richelieu, Alliance des intervenantes en milieu familial, Syndicat du personnel de soutien scolaire de Jonquière and Centrale des syndicats du Québec.
