CEP-CAW New Union Project

15 Oct

From Sunday until Wednesday, I’m at the Communications, Energy, Paperworkers convention in Québec City.

I’ve been tweeting a lot from the convention for Rabble. Normally, my blogs here are posted first, then at Rabble. But, for convention news, I’m doing this in reverse.

So, for the limited number of people who read my blog check here before they check Rabble, here the posts the first two days of the convention:

Day 1

Day 2

The focus of the convention has been on a resolution to merge with the Canadian Auto Workers. The vote happened this morning, and is historic. Both of my articles ask what this decision will mean for CEP and CAW, and the broader labour and progressive movements in general.
