Ontario MAY see changes in their workplace

Thank you to Fatima for sharing this.

Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government is about to get advice that could lead to a significant shakeup of the laws governing work in Ontario. The Changing Workplaces Review is examining just about everything related to labour law in this province, including sick pay, overtime, how workers can join unions and employers’ responsibilities to contract workers. It could trigger the most significant reforms to the Employment Standards Act and the Labour Relations Act since Mike Harris was premier.

Note from the Executive

On November 28th the Annual General meeting of CUPE Local 410 was held and elections conducted for all Executive Board and Steward/Committee positions.  On behalf of the Executive I would first like to acknowledge and thank the outgoing Stewards for their work on behalf of the members.  Secondly I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new Stewards and offer our thanks for their willingness to take on this new role.  Finally, I must  express our deep appreciation for the support you have shown in re-electing all of us to the Executive Board.  There is much work for us to do, but your confidence in us inspires us to keep pushing forward and make this Local better and stronger than ever.

thank you all,

Helen, Fatima, Vicki, Carla, Melissa W, Max
