Federations of Labour in BC, PEI, New Brunswick, Ontario and Alberta have now passed resolutions supporting CUPEs position that voluntary recognition agreements with multinational contractors undermine health care workers, and promote privatization.

CUPE President Paul Moist has continued to work with the CLC to try to resolve the dispute, but has been very clear that redress for CUPE means that the IWA Local 1-3567 must withdraw from the partnership agreements they have signed with four multinationals.

Speaking at the BC Federation of Labour Convention, Brother Moist encouraged delegates to support BC Fed Executive Council resolution that calls for acceptance of the findings of the CLC Umpire and for the CLC Executive to take immediate action to tackle the problem of voluntary agreements with privatizing multi-nationals. Said Moist, It is about the kind of labour movement we want at all levels. The CLC works in communities across Canada, and it must work at the leadership level as well.
