Promise to Protect Public Services

Please click the link below to take the pledge!

Pledge to Protect Our Public Services – CUPE 5167

Hamilton is our home. It is a place that we take a lot of pride in, a city that is being recognized as a great place to live, grow and raise a family. As Hamilton continues to grow, we need to ensure that nobody gets left behind, that the quality public services we all rely on are there for us when we need them.

Ford’s cuts are hurting Hamilton. Since taking office in 2018 the Ford Conservatives have made cuts to health care, including Long-term Care facilities and public health agencies. While our city becomes more expensive, they have made it more difficult for people to make ends meet by taking away paid sick days and pay increases from workers, and making cuts to employment services that help connect people with good jobs. They pulled the plug on the LRT, making Hamilton less accessible for many. Their cuts left the people of Hamilton more vulnerable to the health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now people in Hamilton are getting together to protect our public services. Take the Pledge to Protect Our Public Services today and show your support for building a city that works for everyone, with quality public services, support for people in need and good jobs for all. By signing up to take the pledge, we will provide you with ways to get involved in protecting our public services, materials and information that you can share to show your support for the services that will help Hamilton grow and prosper.

Election Committee Update March 22 2021

Election Committee Report to the General Membership

March 22, 2021

Jean Kirby, along with Beverly Brown will be Election Committee Alternates. Alcino Duarte and Greg Halliday will be the two returning officers.

The election committee met last week to determine the process for the 2021 election.

Due to the ongoing restrictions and unpredictable nature of the pandemic, the committee has determined that the upcoming election will be done electronically through Simply Voting.

The committee met with Simply Voting and they will provide a platform that will allow all members in good standing to vote.

The election will be held between June 10-15, 2021.

All members in good standing will need to register to vote electronically.  Through the registration process the committee will be able to confirm that the member is in fact a member of good standing and that they have an email.  Details on how to register will be provided shortly.

For members who do not have access to a computer or smart phone, kiosks will be set up at the union hall on June 14 and 15 with computers to allow for individuals to vote.  This may be affected by COVID 19 restrictions, if you will need assistance with voting electronically, we encourage you to contact the elections committee by emailing:  elections@cupe5167.org

Simply voting will administer the vote and provide all the results.  Members will be provided a vote receipt to confirm that they have voted and that their vote has been counted.

We encourage everyone to ensure they are a member in good standing prior to the May GMM, which will be the last opportunity for membership approval on members in good standing.
