The National Bargaining Conference will provide local leadership with opportunities to develop skills and share strategies for success in bargaining. Stronger bargaining means more effective unions, better working conditions and healthier communities.
The conference builds on CUPE’s steadfast bargaining policy of “no concessions,” and will feature training in strategic planning processes that will help members prepare more effectively for bargaining. The conference will also highlight tools and resources to support CUPE locals in the full lifecycle of the bargaining process.
The heart of CUPE’s National Bargaining Conference is four half-day workshops where members will develop their skills on everything they need to move forward in bargaining. The workshops will allow members to share their ideas for planning for bargaining, engaging our members, campaigning to build public support and winning strikes.
