The Canadian Association of Professional Employees (CAPE) is looking for volunteers to join the Elections and Resolutions Committee (ERC), one of its most important committees.
From November 10 to November 24, pursuant to CAPE’s Constitution and Bylaws, all members in good standing were invited to vote on a series of resolutions from the NEC and from the membership, to approve the Association’s financial statements and the choice of the auditing firm that will audit the Association’s financial statements. EC members in good standing were also invited to vote on their choice of EC Directors to fill the two vacant positions. Here are the results.
Pursuant to CAPE’s Constitution and Bylaws, all members in good standing will be asked to vote on the resolutions being put forward and to approve the Association’s financial statements for 2021-2022.
The Ontario Ford government has put in writing that it will rescind its legislation banning the strike of CUPE education workers. This was confirmed by CUPE in its own press conference earlier today where it announced an end to the strike to go back to the negotiating table. This demonstrates the power of unions, labour unity and collective action!
CAPE stands in solidarity with CUPE workers who are having their rights trampled on as they seek a fair deal for their critical work in the education sector. CAPE condemns the Ontario government’s invoking of the notwithstanding clause through the passage of Keeping Students in Class Act to override their right to collective bargaining, imposes a four-year contract and bars any constitutional challenge. The Ontario government knows that without this clause their legislation would not stand up to a Constitutional challenge.
In case you missed it, here is the video recording of the EC Directors’ Election Debate.
