The Toronto Public Library Workers will be attending a Solidarity BBQ and Rally organized by CUPE Ontario President Fred Hahn and Secretary Treasurer Candace Rennick this Thursday for CUPE 1600 members at the Toronto Zoo.
There will be hot dogs, hamburgers and vegetarian options, music, sound, and solidarity with our striking CUPE 1600 sisters and brothers.
Nearly 400 members of CUPE 1600 began strike action against the Toronto Zoo last week to defend good jobs that support communities as well as the research, education and conservation programs that make the Zoo a world-leading institution.
We’ll be calling on the Zoo’s Board of Management and Toronto City Councillors to negotiate a fair contract that protects good jobs that support communities and quality animal care for a zoo everyone can be proud to call Our Toronto Zoo.
Meet at the main entrance of the Toronto Zoo on Thursday at 11am
