Media Advisory - Staff march on CUPE executive meeting to demand a fair contract



    OTTAWA, March 13 /CNW Telbec/ - Fed up after 15 months without a contract
and more than a year in bargaining, staff of the Canadian Union of Public
Employees are going directly to the union's national executive board in search
of a fair collective agreement.
    Members of the Canadian Staff Union (CSU), Administrative & Technical
Staff Union (ATSU) and Canadian Office & Professional Employees Union (COPE)
from Ontario and Quebec will march on the board meeting at the Delta Hotel in
downtown Ottawa tomorrow, Wednesday, March 14.
    CUPE, Canada's largest union representing more than half a million
workers, employs about 750 staff across the country. Most belong to one of the
three unions at the bargaining table, where issues have included pension,
workload, training and temporary staff.
