Joining hands that build our communities

Every day, thousands of people in Toronto depend on community social services. Yet a decade of under-funding and under-resourcing has left these agencies unable to meet costs—for basic necessities like heat, capital expenses and decent wages and benefits for their skilled and caring front-line workers.

CUPE Ontario and its Social Service Workers Coordinating Committee have played a large role in developing a joint employer-labour coalition to address the underfunding of community social service agencies and call on the provincial government to reinvest in the sector.

On June 5th, the coalition will launch the Community Social Services Campaign at Queen’s Park. Called “Joining hands that build our communities” community social service agencies and labour groups from across the city will come together to showcase the vital contribution of their work.
