May Day solidarity rally with CUPE 2073

The workers of CUPE local 2073 at the Canadian Hearing Society (CHS) have now been on strike for nearly 2 months.

Meanwhile, the Ontario Liberal government has so far failed to intervene, despite the fact that it provides more than $20 million in annual funding for CHS.

Join CHS workers and community allies to demand that the provincial government tell CHS management to negotiate a fair contract.

WHAT: Workers’ rights rally in solidarity with CUPE 2073
WHEN: 12 pm – 1 pm, May Day (May 1, 2017)
WHERE: MPP Yasir Naqvi’s office, 109 Catherine St, Ottawa (between O’Connor and Metcalfe)

ORGANIZED BY: Ottawa CUPE District CouncilFight for $15 & Fairness Ottawa, and Solidarity Ottawa.

CHS workers provide critically important services to the Deaf, Deafened, Oral Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community. They have been without a contract for 4 years, have had no wage increases and are being threatened with the contracting out of their sick leave benefits. This, despite the CHS CEO getting a 75% pay increase over the last two years. The struggle of CUPE 2073 for a fair contract is part of the fight against deepening inequality and the erosion of public services and workers’ rights. This rally is part of a growing wave of solidarity with CUPE 2073.

May Day, also known as International Workers’ Day, is a time to commemorate fights for workers’ rights, to amplify the struggles of workers across the world who have fought and continue to fight for fairer wages, better working conditions, and equal economic opportunities.
