Maurice Cody child care workers join CUPE

    TORONTO, June 21 /CNW Telbec/ - Maurice Cody child care workers, who work
in a school-based child care centre at Maurice Cody Public School, have voted
to become members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). The
11 early childhood educators and child care workers voted on Tuesday, June 19,
to join CUPE in a certification vote supervised by the Ontario Labour
Relations Board.
    "We are proud to welcome our newest members to our growing CUPE child
care family," said Laura Moore, CUPE national representative. "Child care
professionals deserve respect and recognition for the quality services they
provide to our children - in joining CUPE these workers will ensure they have
a stronger voice in their workplace and the broader community, improving the
quality of child care."

    CUPE advocates for quality, accessible child care, provided by dedicated
professional workers in a not-for-profit environment. As the leading Canadian
union in the child care sector, CUPE continues to wage successful public
awareness campaigns on child care issues, including the push to pass Bill
C-303, an NDP private members bill, that will lay the foundation for an
accountable, high quality early learning and child care system in Canada.
