UWOFA supports OCUFA’s legal challenge to Ford government’s attack on workers’ rights

John Ciriello, President

January 13, 2020

At a recent emergency meeting of the Board of Directors of OCUFA, OCUFA entertained the possibility of either joining the OFL coalition, launching an independent challenge, not getting involved in a challenge, or intervene in one of the ongoing challenges. After considerable discussion, OCUFA introduced a motion and seconded by UWOFA that allows OCUFA to join the OFL coalition in launching a Charter challenge. UWOFA stands with OCUFA to defend the principle and the right to free and fair collective bargaining. All 17,000 OCUFA members are impacted by the introduction of this Act, and the Act has already affected the collective bargaining process with the UWOFA Librarians and Archivists who were stymied in their collective bargaining process this past fall.
