While the theme of the conference was Organizing for Success, there were presentations on building coalitions, organizing, pensions and discussions on ways to best use our collective agreements to end workplace violence and harassment. Members were also invited to highlight the advantages CUPE offers potential members in their sectors of work.
Delegates left the Sector Council Conference with new ideas to fight back against cuts to the public services they deliver, and inspiration to defend and improve their collective agreements.
“Your work every day, and your involvement here, show that you are committed to improving the lives of our members and all Canadian workers,” CUPE National Secretary-Treasurer Charles Fleury told delegates at the end of the conference. “Because of what we accomplished together in Winnipeg, CUPE will be stronger and better equipped to make Canada better.”
