CUPE contracts are the best in health! CUPE ensures that each member can make proposals to improve the collective agreement. CUPE Local 500 negotiates and manages fourteen collective agreements and has approximately 5,000 members. Our bargaining units range from one member to about 5,000 in the City of Winnipeg. All CUPE members work under the protection of a contract called a collective agreement. Your local union negotiates the terms of the agreement. Elected local union leaders also work with the employer to resolve issues in the workplace. “Brian Pallister has put forward ideological cuts to public services and attempted to do so by violating our constitutional right to collective bargaining,” said Abe Araya, President of CUPE Manitoba. “Pallister lost in court today, but the fight against austerity is not over.” “Meanwhile, Conservative cabinet ministers are giving themselves a 5-figure payment.” The Aboriginal Women`s Shelter strives to support and strengthen Aboriginal women and others on their path to healing and re-edating from family violence, addiction, intergenerational issues and institutionalization. We also commend all other SDPP members, including unions across the province, for their cooperation in these difficult times.
