CUPE 500 Launches New radio ad: Longer Wait Times

CUPE 500 has released a new radio ad that aims to highlight the value of Winnipeg’s municipal workforce and the public services they provide.

CUPE 500 is currently in contract negotiations with the City of Winnipeg.  It’s critical that with rising costs of living they are offered a fair wage increase. Wages aren’t keeping up with inflation and families and services are suffering

Our members working in libraries, 311 and other areas are some of the lowest paid municipal workers in the country. Wage parity in our skilled trades are not aligned with other bargaining groups within the City. The work they are doing is considered vital, yet the compensation and respect they receive is not in line with that sentiment.

It’s time for the city to fix the public services we all count on and support the people who provide them by paying fair wages.
