CUPE 4207 in Solidarity with CUPE 911 Workers!

CUPE 911 has over 400 members who include Paramedics and Dispatchers.  They are heading into bargaining and they’re calling for better working conditions to better confront the recruitment and retention crisis. They’re seriously understaffed and can’t retain or recruit people.

Locals from across the region came to offer support and rally with Paramedics and Dispatchers from CUPE 911 at White Oaks this morning. Jeff Burch gave a short speech and offered support. It was a chilly and windy morning, but great to see all the support at the rally and from all the cars and trucks driving by!
