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!
