1) "Freedom Convoy" & CUPW Organizing Analysis
2) Local Newsletter - February 2022
3) Delivering Community Power
The crisis of purpose facing CUPW can be solved by returning to the fundamentals of true unionism: leadership must do everything it can to develop and nurture the organizing capacity of our membership, and our membership must go about growing our own organizing capacity whether supported by our leadership or not.
As per the direction given by our CUPW National Executive, locals can hold GMMs via video conference as long as quorum is met and all participants have registered with all the required information by the specified deadline. For our full virtual GMM guidelines, please see the accompanying post.

What set the stage for their victory, and how did they get there?
