Local 744 Contract Ratification Vote

A ratification vote was held today for members of CUPE Local 744. The membership voted overwhelmingly to accept the Division’s offer of a three (3) year contract providing for 1.6%, 1.4% & .5% wage increases.

The Local’s Bargaining Committee is very appreciative of the courage demonstrated by the Division during these difficult times.

Together we must fight Islamophobia and the rise of hatred

CUPE offers sincere condolences to the family and friends of the Muslim family who were victims of Islamophobic hate in London, Ontario. 

CUPE bears witness, calls for concrete federal action as more unmarked graves discovered at residential schools

CUPE continues to stand with Indigenous communities across Canada as they grieve the unmarked graves that continue to be found across the country at former residential school sites. Most recently, Cowessess First Nation discovered 751 unmarked graves near the Marieval Indian Residential School grounds in Saskatchewan

Sisters, Brothers & Friends,

I’m pleased to share the good news that the Manitoba NDP Official Opposition announced today that they are using their legislative privilege to delay the Pallister government’s anti-worker / anti-union Bill 16 so that this regressive legislation will not be assured guaranteed passage this spring – see News Release attached.

Bill 16: The Labour Relations Amendment Act is designed to undermine fair collective bargaining, by tipping the scales against workers in favour of large employers, weakening fairness and increasing conflict in the workplace.

Please visit mfl.ca/stop16 to sign our petition against Bill 16, watch our 16 videos, and download our Activist Guide to Bill 16 and other resources for fighting back against Bill 16.

Manitoba’s labour laws get the job done. Don’t let Pallister wreck what’s working.

In Solidarity,

Kevin Rebeck

President of the Manitoba Federation of Labour

We all know parents and teachers want smaller class sizes and more supports in schools to help kids succeed.

Bill 64 has none of that – it just doesn’t add up to a better education for our kids.

Let’s work together to fight back and build a plan that really works – for kids, families and schools.
