CUPE Shows Support for Striking Library Workers in Ontario

Striking library workers in Ontario received support from the provincial and national levels of the Canadian Union of Public Employees this week. CUPE officials attended a rally in support of workers at the Essex County Library system, who are members of CUPE Local 2974, as well as a solidarity barbecue for workers at Mississauga Library System, members of CUPE Local 1989. The president of CUPE Local 1989 said: 
"Knowing we have such tremendous support from our community allies and from CUPE Ontario and CUPE National is nothing short of amazing for us."
Essex library workers have been on strike since June 25. Workers from Mississauga began striking on July 4.
