After a union card membership signature blitz, CUPE has filed an application for union certification on behalf of Gatineau’s white-collar workers’ union which has been independent for the past 30 years. A majority of white-collar workers decided to join CUPE.
“We are very pleased with the outcome. CUPE reflects who we are and provides clear and unparalleled support to its members. With the help of Quebec’s largest municipal union, we will have a better bargaining position at the negotiating table with the City of Gatineau,” said Marc Demers.
