CUPE BC endorses Mark Hancock and Charles Fleury for re-election at CUPE National Convention

BURNABY—CUPE BC’s Executive Board has unanimously voted to endorse CUPE National President Mark Hancock and Secretary-Treasurer Charles Fleury for re-election at the upcoming National Convention in Toronto, CUPE BC President Paul Faoro said today.

“Already the largest union in Canada, CUPE continues to grow under the leadership of Mark and Charles,” said Faoro. “In addition to providing constant, unflagging support to Locals who’ve been locked out or have gone on strike, CUPE has developed stronger, more effective political action programs. Here in B.C., the recent election of the BC NDP literally could not have happened without the strong support of Mark and Charles.

“That’s just one example of the impact of Mark’s first term as National President has made, and Charles has managed the finances of our union to ensure we have the strongest defence fund in our history.

“Our union is stronger because of the work that Mark and Charles have accomplished together over the past two years. Let’s make sure that progress continues by re-electing two of the strongest trade unionists I’ve ever met,” said Faoro.

CUPE’s National Convention is in Toronto October 2-6.
