IUPAT Union Negotiations Are Coming, and Results Will Affect Toronto and Ontario Painters, Glaziers and Other Union Members

The IUPAT DC 46 union negotiations that will affect union members including Toronto and Ontario painters, glaziers, drywall finishers and other members, will take place in early 2016. Thanks to previous negotiations of this kind, IUPAT members were able to secure and improve their wages and benefits through collective bargaining and agreements, as well as improved working conditions. Consequently, the 2016 union negotiations are being highly anticipated by everyone who is a member of the IUPAT.

Unions in Toronto Have a More Positive Outlook Based on the Latest Election Results

As you are aware, the latest election results have been in our favour. We are excited for the future of unions in Toronto, especially the IUPAT. According to the campaign promises made by Premier Kathleen Wynne, a new 10-year infrastructure program will be put into place that places $130 billion on transit, transportation, hospitals, schools, colleges and universities. For the IUPAT, that means more opportunities for work for all of our members.

Provincial Election June 12, 2014

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As you are no doubt aware, there is a provincial election scheduled for June 12,2014.

I know that our members often get frustrated by the number of elections we have had in Ontario over the past few years. However, this June, organized labour is going to stand up and ensure that we have the people in government who will best look after the rights of working people like our members.

Important Message for IUPAT Members

We can NOT trust Tim Hudak. Although he has changed his message, the Conservative leader still plans to weaken your union and every other union in Ontario.

** Weaken union bargaining power in negotiations with employers
** Undermine wages, benefits and pensions of both union and non-union workers
** Reduce workplace safety and union representation
** Cut good jobs for the next generation
** Weaken defense of public services, human rights and the environment
