• CUPE Local 2268 Our day begins before the kids are out of bed. We are unlocking the doors, warming up the buses, shoveling the walks and checking the boilers. Preparing the schools for students is part of our work day. When the school bell rings, we are there.

Peace, Justice and Solidarity

holiday

 

As the holiday season approaches, and as 2017 comes to a close, we want to send our warmest holiday greetings and our most sincere thanks to all CUPE members.

The past year has been full of challenges, as members across the country stood strong in the fight for fairness, respect and better working conditions, at the bargaining table and on the picket line. CUPE has led the charge against precarious work, and for more stable employment and retirement security for all Canadians.

CUPE members have never been in a better position to bargain forward on the things that matter most. As a union, with over 650,000 members, our solidarity has never been stronger. We are strong because of activists and leaders like you.

In the spirit of peace, justice and solidarity, we wish you a wonderful holiday season and the very best for 2018.

In solidarity,

Developing a Workplace Policy for Legal Marijuana

cira saskatoonMEETING ANNOUNCEMENT

Legalized marijuana, both for medical and recreational use, is coming soon to a workplace near you. In the absence of an accepted impairment test for marijuana equivalent to the .08 breathalyzer standard for alcohol, employers and unions will be entering uncharted territory. Marijuana may show up in a urine or blood sample weeks after ingestion and its presence does not necessarily indicate impairment. How will employer policies reflect the legalization of marijuana? What are the responsibilities of unions in balancing the off-duty rights of their members with helping to ensure safe workplaces?

Taking the union to the members

Table Talk

CUPE National’s Leadership Survey discovered a lot of useful insights for building stronger union locals. Two themes in particular emerged across the board: the idea of “taking the union to the members,” and the need to talk to members in person.
