Workers at the Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library voted almost unanimously to join CUPE in 2021. They are still trying to get a fair collective agreement from their employer – one that recognizes how the cost of living has skyrocketed over the last two years and the reality that half the library’s staff have left.
After a marathon 18-hour day of bargaining that ended at 3:00 a.m. on Friday, July 21, library workers were left with no choice but to withdraw their labour and go on strike.
Library workers want to get back to providing the programing and services the community relies on and loves.
Send a message to your Councillor and Mayor now. Ask them to get the library back to the table with a mandate that will respect library workers and allow them to feed their families.
