Delegates attended the conference along with 300 other CUPE delegates in the Social Service Sector including CAS’s, Child Care, Developmental Services, Community Agencies and Municipal Social Services.

The conference was an opportunity to learn about lobbying the government and to be inspired into action within our local, within our sector and within our community.

We were able to dedicate 1 1/2 days with other CUPE CAS locals to discuss common issues and strategize around collective bargaining.

Delegates also attended a rally for Child Care.
