Essex County Library Workers, CUPE 2974 on Strike.
CUPE Local 2974 - Library Workers for Essex County have been on strike since June 25.
They are fighting deep concessions, including the claw back of more than half of their existing sick time.
Members are holding strong. But after a month on the picket lines, they need our help now more than ever.
That’s why we’re holding a Solidarity Rally and Food Drive for CUPE 2974 next Thursday, July 28 from 10:00 – 1:00 pm at the Essex Civic Centre (360 Fairview Street West, Essex).
Join CUPE Ontario Secretary-Treasurer Candace Rennick, 1st Vice-President Michael Hurley, OMECC Chair Ann Jenkins, CACO Chair Jeff van Pelt, Board Members Eddie Pereira and Patrick Hannon, Former CAW National President Ken Lewenza, and many other labour leaders for a morning of on-the-ground support and solidarity for these amazing Library Warriors!
Make sure to bring donations for CUPE 2974's food bank. There are no families with babies, so formula and diapers are not needed. See you there!
