National Day of Remembrance and Action to End Violence Against Women

The Toronto Public Library Workers Union commits to the ongoing fight to end violence against women, including our murdered and missing Indigenous women. As a step in this direction, our union recently negotiated a paid leave for victims of domestic or sexual abuse.

From CUPE National:

On December 6, we mark the anniversary of the 1989 École Polytechnique massacre, where 14 women were singled out and murdered because of their gender. One of those women, Maryse Laganière, was a CUPE member who worked at the school.

On this day, we join with millions of Canadians, in unions and organizations of all kinds, to encourage our members to learn more, bargain and take action.

Thank you everyone who voted, volunteered, donated and supported my campaign. While it wasn’t the result we hoped for, I’m so grateful to everyone who was part of the movement we built together over the past few months in #Ward22! Congratulations to Nick Mantas on your election.

Special shout-out to the amazing #LibraryWarriors @torontolibrary who worked very hard this year to promote and fundraise for @UWGreaterTO.

We are the recipients of the “Outstanding Campaign of the Year” award. @Local4948 @vbowlestpl @JohnTory @torontolabour 👏 👓

WOW! Our thanks to all the generous staff at @cityoftoronto who have shown so much #LocalLove for our communities when they absolutely needed it most❤️

Thank you @cupelocal79 @Local416 CUPE 2998 @cotapsa @TPFFA @Local4948 @torontolibrary & all others who supported this campaign! https://twitter.com/JohnTory/status/1350152327043420162

Unions/associations @cityoftoronto helped to raise $67,500 for the @UWGreaterTO this year, despise challenges in fundraising and limited ability for in-person events. We care deeply about the communities we serve. @cupelocal79 @Local416 CUPE 2998 @cotapsa @TPFFA @Local4948
