Consider joining the Labour Day parade on Monday September 4th, and afterwards supporting some CUPE 3912 NSCAD, SMU TA, and former Dalhousie Strike Committee speakers.
In 2022, the Labour Day speakers included a member of the CUPE 3912 Dalhousie Strike Committee. In 2023 there will be a follow up “Thank you” message, plus more good news from our new bargaining units.
People will be gathering at 10:30 for an 11:00 am start to the Labour Day parade through some Halifax streets. The parade will start in the park between the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and the Nova Scotia Labour Board office (ie. between 1601 – 1675 Lower Water Street).
The parade ends at the Peace and Friendship Park, across the street from the railway station and Westin hotel.
The theme this year is “Lifting everyone up”. All from within the broad organized labour family are welcome.
In 2023, the CUPE 3912 membership “footprint” expanded to include new bargaining units from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and the Saint Mary’s University Teaching Assistants.
This is more good news from CUPE 3912, following our successful Dal Strike in 2022, which helped to achieve our three new collective agreements with three different employers.
Please join us if you can, and spread the word with others.
On Tuesday September 5, CUPE 3912 will be at a part-time faculty orientation event at MSVU, and on Wednesday September 6, at a Teaching Assistant (TA) Day event at Dalhousie University.
Later in September we will have some by-elections and another Special Membership Meeting. More on that next time.
Enjoy your Labour Day weekend.
