Since 2008 the International Trade Union Confederation, of which CUPE is an active member, has been organising the World Day for Decent Work (WDDW) on October 7.

It is a day for mobilisation for all trade unions across the globe, from Fiji in the east to Hawaii in the west. Every year there are hundreds of activities in a hundred countries, carried out by millions of people.

This year, Decent Work activities took place in many cities across Canada. The Canadian Labour Congress’ International Department has produced a summary of Canadian activities on October 7. The CLC’s activities and its “together FAIRNESS WORKS initiative are reported along with those of its affiliates.
