Next GMM - Mandatory Mask Enforcement - Shift Premiums - RSMC New Hire Package - Ending Violence Against Women
As per direction given by our National executive, locals will be allowed to hold GMMs via video conference during the pandemic with the only restrictions being that local quorum be reached and all participants be clearly documented. The circumstances of this meeting are far from ideal; we ask for your understanding and support in trying our best to keep our local functioning to help our members.
This documentary examines the 1965 rise of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers through the organizing efforts and strike action of the rank-and-file workers who defied management, the government, and their own leadership to achieve their demands.
The Oct 26 province-wide wildcat by AUPE health workers will be the first of many serious actions against the Kenney government by labour over the next year. To reiterate the statement I made earlier this week: AUPE’s example was not only heroic but deeply instructive of how the labour movement needs to prepare itself if it is truly committed to defeating governments attacking workers.
Join us Thursday morning, Nov 5, at 6:15am to show support for AUPE workers that dared stand up to the Kenney government. They risked severe fines and discipline to show us how labour will need to fight to win; the least we could do is get up a bit earlier to let them know they are not alone in this struggle. An injury to one is an injury to all!
