Labour Day 2020 - CUPE 543

 

CUPE Local 543 is a composite local representing over 1600 members. Our members have a voice in the largest union in Canada, now representing almost 650,000 members nationally. Local 543 members are proud public servants/service employees serving our community in childcare (ABC Day Nursery and Great Beginnings Child Centered Cooperative Incorp.), public health (Windsor-Essex County Health Unit), community housing (Windsor Essex Community Housing Corp.), environmental sustainability (Synagro), retirement living (Season’s Retirement Communities in Amherstburg) and municipal services (Corp. of the City of Windsor).   This Labour Day, we renew our commitment to leading initiatives against neoliberal ideologies that serve to attack working-class people. We renew our commitment to protect the initiatives we have successfully achieved and continue to fight for more. We strive for respectable family-sustaining occupations, that provide appropriate wage increases and benefit enhancements. We think about and send our solidarity to all worker advocacy groups, working tirelessly, here in Canada and internationally, fighting for the betterment of all workers.
