CUPE 2067 represents library workers from the Windsor Public Library. Our library workers perform roles from librarians and caretakers, to graphic designers and accounting. We have 10 locations across the city, as well as an archives and bookmobile. We love working directly with the communities that we serve, and have always prided ourselves on delivering excellent customer service.
COVID-19 has proved to be no exception. Despite not being able to have patrons come through our doors, we have created innovative ways to continue offering materials and programs to the community. We would hand select books for contactless delivery, offer craft kits to families, and planned numerous online programming features such as trivia, storytimes and book clubs.
CUPE 2067 also loves to give back to the community. During COVID we participated in a 14-day giveaway to our patrons of gift certificates to local businesses. We also got involved in the June 27 Miracle by donating supplies and putting lots of volunteers on the ground. Additionally, we support local charities such as the United Way, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the Unemployed Help Centre, just to name a few.
Labour Day is an especially important holiday for our members because it serves as an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of organized labour throughout the years. We are thankful for the rights and privileges workers and unions have fought for before us. We will continue to do our part in years to come to negotiate fair contracts, improve working conditions, and stand in solidarity with all workers.
