CUPE ONTARIO CONFERENCE 2018

Slide2

CUPE Local 122 sent 5 delegates to the CUPE Ontario Conference in Toronto – 4 voting delegates plus 1 retired delegate

The purpose of this conference is to draft an annual action plan to address the social and political objectives of our members, to pass resolutions from the various sectors and to elect an executive board.

Here are some of the highlights:

Slide3

More than 1000 delegates gathered to demand better for public services

The theme of the conference was “Be Bold, Be Brave, Demand Better”

It’s about the strength and courage our members continue to demonstrate in our collective fight to build a fairer province. A province where people have good jobs and access to the public services they need.

Slide4

Believe in the power of solidarity

CUPE ONTARIO PRESIDENT FRED HAHN urged members to use the power of solidarity to effect changes.

He highlighted some current fights: four hours of care for seniors, overdose prevention sites such as the one in Toronto’s Moss Park, the fight to keep Ontario Hydro public

Success stories – the creation of the new Ontario School Board Council of Unions which will mobilize 60,000 CUPE education workers across the province

Slide5

A bold vision backed by action

“At our last convention, we set a bold agenda for CUPE Ontario and I am proud to say that we followed through on our commitments by backing them up with meaningful resources,” said CUPE Ontario’s Secretary-Treasurer Candace

Rennick

.

Slide6

Bargaining forward, seizing the political moment

In his address to the conference, National President Mark Hancock urged members to stay focused and stand together in order to win. He outlined several recent victories including the provincial contract negotiated by the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions – a deal that features no concessions, new workplace violence language and a wage increase.

Slide7

Fleury: CUPE ready to face challenges of 2018

National Secretary-Treasurer Charles Fleury addressed the conference. In his remarks he noted that members in Ontario will see increase in staff that will improve support. “During the past few years, we managed our finances very carefully, and CUPE is in the fortunate position of now putting all of our surplus directly to additional staff positions and other priority areas of our work.”

Slide8

Equality debate – “This is how we move forward”

The pain, fear and guilt that go along with difficult but necessary conversations about race and equality, were cracked open on the convention floor following a presentation of a research report on racial equality within our union.

“We need to move beyond the illusion of inclusion,” one delegate told those assembled in the hall. Another delegate reminded the room of one of our core union principles, ‘an injury to one is an injury to all’, telling delegates that “We need you to understand that we are all injured.”

Slide9

“We can build up a vibrant economy that works for everyone”

NDP leader

Jagmeet

Singh addressed the membership: “Describing it as one of the biggest issues facing the electorate, Singh addressed growing inequality. “We’re seeing people become more and more uncertain about their future…

Ipsos

-Reed put out a report that found the majority of Canadians – 51% - feel like they’re just $200 away from losing it all… because decisions have been made to increase inequality. In the last year, 80% of the wealth generated went to the top – guess who? – 1%.
