  • Flawed studies shouldn’t stop CPP expansion: Moist

    Statement by Paul Moist in response to the Fraser Institutes’ recent report on the expansion of the Canada Pension Plan:

    Encouraging Canadians to rely heavily on voluntary savings schemes for their retirement incomes is a fools’ errand that will only deepen this country’s pension crisis. Yet the Conservatives, banks and other financial institutions, and right-wing think tanks keep promoting RRSPs and other individual savings vehicles over the far more effective, efficient and affordable way of helping the over 11 million Canadians without a work place pension – expanding the Canada Pension Plan.

    The latest CPP roadblock comes from the Fraser Institute. The right-wing think tank claims expanding the CPP would lead to Canadians contributing less to RRSPs.

    The simple response to their less then vigorous analysis is – so what?

    While individual savings are an integral part of Canada’s pension system, relying heavily on RRSPs for retirement income is a risky strategy. RRSPs are insecure, subject to high management fees, and are often funded without any contributions from employers. These factors leave retirement savings at risk of being wiped out by financial market instability, and pose the very real threat of people out living their savings.

    And the statistics clearly show Canadians aren’t contributing to RRSPs. In 2013, only 23 per cent of people filing taxes reported any contributions. Canadians have almost $900 billion dollars in unused room to contribute. After decades of stagnant wages, most Canadians are just trying to make ends meet.

    So why should we prop up the obviously flawed RRSP by forsaking a much better and fairer solution?  

    By expanding CPP benefits with modest, affordable phased-in increases to the contributions made by workers and employers, we can ensure millions of Canadians have a secure, reliable pension, indexed for inflation for their entire retirements.

    This is the best plan.  And as repeated polls showing overwhelming public support for CPP expansion, Canadians already know it.

  • CUPE 2015 Election Hub

    Canadians are just one election away from an NDP government that will finally deliver on affordable childcare,  a sustainable economy with better jobs,  a stronger healthcare system, and retirement security for all. 

  • CUPE National Convention Awards

    At the upcoming 2015 Convention in Vancouver, the following awards will be presented.

    • The nomination deadline for all awards is August 5, 2015.

    Disability Rights Activism Award

    Help to recognize the achievement and activism of a CUPE member with a disability or that a CUPE chartered organization has made to advance disability rights in our union. The award recognizes activism in CUPE by a member or retiree with a disability, a local or district council whose actions for members with disabilities have made a difference. 

    Grace Hartman Award

    Do you know a CUPE sister who’s done outstanding work on women’s issues in our union? Has your local been breaking ground in the struggle for equity and social justice for women? Grace Hartman was CUPE’s first woman president. This award pays tribute to Grace’s activist spirit and her commitment to workers’ rights, equality and social justice. Delegates to the 1999 CUPE National Convention created the award to honour women activists and locals that follow in Grace’s footsteps.

    National Health and Safety Award

    Do you know an individual who has made a significant health and safety contribution? Who’s actions have helped others? CUPE’s National Health and Safety Committee would like to hear from you. 

    National Literacy Award

    The CUPE National Literacy Committee is looking for a literacy champion. This is a member or group of members who have promoted workplace literacy or clear language. 

    Ed Blackman Award

    Nominate a CUPE activist who has shown leadership in the pursuit of racial equality, ending racism, promoting diversity and advancing racial justice for all workers of colour? Brother Blackman was a committed activist in the community, and had a passionate commitment to social unionism and building a strong and diverse labour movement founded on racial justice. The Ed Blackman Award is presented to a CUPE member who strengthens the labour movement.

    Communications Awards

    National Convention is a great opportunity to acknowledge some of the fantastic communications work our locals have been doing. We’ve revised the categories of the Communications Awards to better reflect the goal of effective communication: getting your message heard and inspiring action.

  • CUPE 6079 wins Earth Day contest

    Blue binsCongratulations to members of CUPE 6079 of the Hospital Employees Union Division of CUPE for being selected the overall winner of the 2015 Earth Day contest. The top three runners-up are CUPE Locals 301, 556 and 4953. The entries were evaluated by members of the National Environment Committee. CUPE’s Earth Day contest highlights the progressive environmental steps that our members take where they work.

    CUPE 6079 members work at the 100 Mile Health Centre in the British Columbia interior. Members there have been active on environmental issues for many years. They helped set up the health centre’s first “Green Team” – a workplace environment committee. The committee decided to tackle waste and recycling issues, as there was no municipal or workplace recycling in their community. Some community members collected recyclables to be trucked to a neighbouring community to be processed. The Green Team used this model and started to collect paper, tins, glass and plastics in makeshift bins. CUPE members volunteered to sort the materials according to type.

    recycling systemThe grassroots program eventually grew. With a Health Foundation grant, the Local helped establish a formal recycling program with proper blue bins and recycling stations in the health centre. Other departments came on board. Maintenance workers started recycling light bulbs and tubes, while pharmacy workers began to recycle medicine bottles, plastics and Styrofoam. All the while, the Green Team ran campaigns in the health centre to promote waste diversion and to raise workers’ environmental consciousness.

    recycleAmong the runner-ups, CUPE 301 installed two charging stations for electrical vehicles, joining the Quebec provincial government’s “Plugged in at Work” program. CUPE 556 is recognized for their community outreach work with Vancouver Island Waterwatch. CUPE 4953 in Victoriaville, QC implemented extensive workplace environmental practices, such as creating a carpooling program and a paper and electricity conservation program.  

    Congratulations to all CUPE members for their efforts to build more sustainable workplaces and communities every day of the year.
