On The Ledge – The Unions Strike Back – CUPE Education Workers Threaten Province Wide Walkout

October 5, 2019 – Well that escalated in a hurry.

CUPE represents some 55 thousand education workers across the province and has been in contract negotiations with the province over the past few weeks. It appeared they were close to a deal on Sunday, September 29th, but the union walked away from the negotiations saying they would commence a work to rule on September 30. Two days later, union leadership announced plans for a full scale strike unless there is a deal by 12:01 AM on Monday, October 6th.
