CUEFA congratulates CUPE education workers in Ontario.
November 7, 2022
CUEFA congratulates and thanks CUPE education workers in Ontario for their recent success in forcing the Ontario government to repeal legislation designed to override the rights of workers to strike and bargain collectively.
CUEFA knows the importance of using good faith bargaining and the right to strike to improve the working conditions of teachers and the learning conditions of students. The proposed legislation threatened to strip CUPE workers of those rights, setting a precedent that would have negatively affected labour unions across Canada and the workplaces they serve.
CUPE’s success in mobilizing opposition to this legislation underlines the importance of collective labour action for the preservation of worker rights in Canada.
