Showcasing OPSEU’s long track record of success
What do we mean when we say OPSEU offers you the strength of experience?
We mean that for decades, OPSEU members have worked together to push for and win meaningful improvements to the vital services they can offer to children, youth, and families.
At the bargaining table. In the community. And at Queen’s Park.
Here’s just a small sample of material showcasing our long track record of success:
A persistent and powerful voice with government
Your employer is Strides. But Strides depends on investment from the Ontario government to fund the vital services you provide. That’s why OPSEU is a regular and respected presence at Queen’s Park.
- Our submission arguing forcefully against Bill 124, the legislation that has capped your wage increases at just 1 per cent a year for three years.
- The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees your right to free and fair collective bargaining. That’s why OPSEU launched a Charter challenge against Bill 124, which has capped your wage increases at just 1 per cent a year for three years.
- Every year, OPSEU lays out to government powerful arguments about why the strong investment in public services like yours ultimately help everybody in Ontario.
