Our Visit with CUPE 4616

Members from OPSEU locals 608 and 658 traveled to the landfill site in Bonfield, Ontario on Saturday November 9 2013 to visit the workers of CUPE 4616 who are currently on strike. It was day 101 of the strike, but the group was still in high spirits.

Together, OPSEU locals 608, 657, 658, 616, 629 and the region 6 board donated $1250 to CUPE 4616. Thank you brothers and sisters!

You can find CUPE 4616 on Facebook and Twitter.
