Welcome, delegates, to a city whose feisty labour history has been an inspiration to us all.
Get set for a week of CUPE action, debate, decisions, solidarity and fun in the city of the 1919 General Strike. Like any great CUPE convention, we are here to support each other at caucuses, committee meetings, policy debates and evening events galore. And don’t forget your dancing shoes for Tuesday’s dance.
Your votes on hundreds of resolutions will influence the workplaces of 540,000 CUPE members. It will also make a difference in communities across the country. Your ideas and participation at dozens of events will help us stay on the front line. It’s our 22nd national convention. Let’s do ourselves and our communities proud.
