CUPE raises funds for striking miners

Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) union members from across Ontario have raised USD 70,000 in donations and pledges for the thousands of striking Sudbury workers and their families. The CUPE delegates put their money where their mouths were as speaker after speaker went to the mikes to commit donations from their local union. After USD 30,000 was committed from CUPE Ontario local unions, Ontario Federation of Labour president Mr Sid Ryan committed a further USD 5000 from the OFL. CUPE National leader Paul Moist promised to match everything raised on the floor that night, bringing the donation total to USD 70,000.
