CUPE 3903 Executive Committee Recommends Solidarity Strike Action
Last week, Doug Ford’s government attempted to suppress a legal strike initiated by 55,000 Ontario School Board workers (OSBCU) by invoking the notwithstanding clause, denying workers’ right to strike as outlined by Charter, to impose an unfair contract on these educational workers.
The Ontario government’s anti-democratic actions strike at the very heart of the labour movement and we need to respond en masse and with militancy to protect every worker’s right to strike. This is why the Executive Committee is recommending that the membership engage in a solidarity strike with OSBCU workers beginning November 14th until Bill 28 is repealed.
Members should plan to attend two emergency Special General Membership Meetings this week to participate in planning our solidarity action.
The first meeting is on Zoom on November 8th from 1pm to 4:00pm. All members are encouraged to attend.
