CUPE Ontario retirees are members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees currently retired and living across Ontario.

When our public services, pensions, benefits, and public healthcare system are threatened by all levels of governments and their corporate allies, we strongly believe that we as retirees need to come together to fight to protect our hard won-rights and to express our solidarity to the current unionized and non-unionized workers who are fighting for better working conditions and to build a better society.
