Remembering Montreal, and all the women's lives lost since

"I'd like to see a day when the justice system works in favour of abused women and children. A day when we commemorate the end to domestic and stranger violence. A day where we celebrate an end to harassment and discrimination based on gender." — Elisabeth Ballermann, NUPGE Secretary-Treasurer

National Union supports CUPW in fighting back-to-work legislation

"That the Prime Minister, instead of allowing you the chance to resolve these issues at the bargaining table, has chosen to support the employer by legislating your members back to work is outrageous. This attack on workers’ rights is something that all of us in the labour movement must take a stand against." — Larry Brown, NUPGE President

Will it be social finance or anti-social finance?

When social finance is used to privatize public services, costs go up. In addition to investor profits, using social finance to privatize public services means new layers of bureaucracy.

Ottawa (03 Dec. 2018) — Depending on how it’s used, the newly announced Social Finance Fund will either be a useful tool for economic development or a hefty subsidy for a new form of privatization.

National Union supports Accessible Canada Act

"We know that discrimination against people with disabilities is compounded when they are faced with additional forms of oppression, such as racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, classism and colonialism. We cannot talk about one without addressing the others." — Larry Brown, NUPGE President

CUPW and CLC issue joint statement in support of workers

“We are calling on the federal government to allow for a fair process by encouraging workers and the employer to come to an agreement that works for everyone. This back-to-work legislation is a clear violation of workers’ Charter rights. CUPW successfully fought to have this right explicitly upheld by the Supreme Court.” — Hassan Yussuff, CLC President
