OPSSU supports striking Peel Region CAS workers

October 19, 2016 – The Ontario Public Service Staff Union stands in solidarity with Peel Region Children’s Aid Society workers, members of CUPE 4914, as they enter their fifth week on strike.

The Peel CAS workers have been on strike since September 18, 2016. They have been without a collective agreement since March 31, 2016.

OPSSU stands in solidarity with striking BCNU staff

October 19, 2016 – The Ontario Public Service Staff Union stands in solidarity with the staff of the BC Nurses Union, members of MoveUP, who have been on strike for almost three months. As union staff ourselves, we understand the important work the BCNU staff do with their hard-working members, because we do the same work with the members of OPSEU.

We support MoveUP’s demands for a fair contract without concessions, their flex hour proposal to address workload issues, access to medical and family responsibility leave, and no rollback in their existing benefits.
