Attention all OPSEU members and labour rights supporters. Developmental Services needs your help!!!

On June 24th we will be holding an information picket.

Location is 303 York St.

Time: 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Our employer, Community Living Greater Sudbury is refusing to fairly distribute funds that were allotted by the Ministry of Community and Social Services. These funds were distributed to stabilize the workforce by increasing existing low wages and improving precarious work conditions. Our employer is insisting on applying the funds to previously bargained wages and meeting past pay equity obligations.

Now is the time to pick up your swords and shields and help us slay a dragon once again.

We look forward to seeing you all there! It is with our hearts beating as one that we will win this battle.

Life is all about choices, you can choose to lay down and surrender or choose to stand up and fight.

Help us stand tall!

In solidarity,
Local 676
