CUPE 1600 members are on strike to protect good jobs that support our communities, as well as the best-possible care for the 5,000 animals at the Toronto Zoo. Management at the Zoo want workers to accept a contract that weakens job security. This region already has too many insecure, precarious jobs. You can’t maintain a world-leading education, research and conservation facility with unstable precarious work. Help the members of CUPE 1600 secure a fair contract that supports a world-leading facility everyone can be proud to call ‘Our Toronto Zoo’.
CUPE 1600 has been on strike since May 11, fighting to protect good jobs that support both communities and quality animal care.
The Zoo, and its owner, the City of Toronto are demanding a two-tier agreement that will hurt future generations of Toronto Zoo workers.
This Friday, join CUPE 1600 for an afternoon rally in Nathan Phillips Square.
Let’s send a strong message that a Toronto Zoo that values good jobs that support communities, world-leading research, education and conservation efforts, and quality animal care is one everyone can be proud to call ‘Our Toronto Zoo.’
