COPE Local 343 is proud to represent 1,600 members and 93 bargaining units across Canada, and we are composed of office, professional, clerical, and technical employees.
Like all unions, we have had to adjust to the circumstances of a global pandemic. Unfortunately, as a result of COVID-19, many of our members have lost steady employment. Through the power of our union, we have been able to secure supports for our brothers and sisters to help them through this challenging time.
This year, we are reminded more than ever of the importance of unions. Our union has ensured that employers take the safety of our members seriously. We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in both unionized and non-unionized workplaces in the fight for proper workplace protections and employment standards. No worker should have to go to work and fear for their wellbeing.
Thank you, workers, and Happy Labour Day 2020!
