The CUPE Ambulance Committee of Ontario, also known as “CACO”, serves to unite emergency medical workers of Ontario in co-ordinating and presenting common objectives and matters pertaining to workers in the ambulance sector. We present matters of legal, policy and legislative concern of emergency medical workers to CUPE Ontario, the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU) and CUPE National. At all time we work for the good and welfare of the members in the ambulance sector and work for the support of the programs of CUPE Ontario, and encourage affiliation to CUPE Ontario.
CACO takes all possible steps to establish close cooperation and communications between emergency medical workers in Ontario and in doing so shall establish and maintain an up-to-date list of Local Unions and a file of current Collective Agreements pertaining to the ambulance sector.
CACO will keep locals with emergency medical workers informed of ongoing programs and assist and help in all ways possible to create active and responsive locals working together towards common unified positions within the province.
Finally, CACO will plan, in conjunction with CUPE Ontario and OCHU, the National Union educational seminars/workshops to define common interests and to organize and plan conferences.
