CUPE celebrates World Public Services Day as Communities Day in Canada

18 June 2012
The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) is celebrating World Public Services Day with a re-launch of the union’s Communities Day on June 23, 2012 and a cross-country ad campaign highlighting the importance of quality public services delivered by CUPE members in every community.

CUPE is also using June 23rd to tell the stories of CUPE members as community builders. Many members give back to their cities and towns in their spare time. Watch for profiles of CUPE community builders in the coming days, starting with this profile of Ontario paramedic Sandra Hynds.

With the re-launch of Communities Day, CUPE locals are working with their municipal governments to proclaim communities day.  Thanks to the work of CUPE 608, the City of Penticton has proclaimed June 23 as Communities Day – the first community to do so!
