Labour Day 2019
On Monday, September 2 CUPE Ontario members will take part in Labour Day events in communities across the province.
The annual celebration has its roots in the labour movement’s fight for an eight-hour work day and celebrates the many gains unions have struggled for on behalf of all workers, including health and safety regulations, parental leave, better wages, pay equity laws, and same-sex spousal benefits.

Amalgamation – this is a hot topic that if passed could effect us all, even if you don’t live in the area(s) that are being reviewed.
Please take a moment and complete the survey and voice your concerns and share your comments about this proposal.
For those who may not be aware, the Ontario Government is looking at amalgamating or “reviewing” several regional governments. This amalgamation review has happened in the past and we saw municipalities in and around Toronto (Etobicoke, Scarborough, North York etc) became the City of Toronto. At the same time, Waterdown, Stoney Creek, Dundas, all merged with City of Hamilton. The focus today is on, Halton Hills, Milton, Burlington and Oakville, potentially creating the City of Halton. Other regions such has Durham, Niagara and communities in the north are also being reviewed.
