HISTORY OF CUPE LOCAL 3223
Our Local, proud members of CUPE, was organized in late 1987. The Local started with approximately 70 members, and are employees of Durham Children’s Aid Society in Oshawa, Ontario.
We have had six Presidents since our Local was organized and have increased in size to approximately 330 members.
We have been on strike twice, once in 1992 for 2 weeks and again in 2000 for four weeks. No strike is ever easy on members. However, they braved both strikes and through it all, our Local has been stronger than ever and continue to strive to having a strong, healthy and productive work environment.
We have been housed in several different locations over the years.
In July 2008, our Society and Local centralized to our permanent home at 1320 Airport Blvd., Oshawa, Ontario L1H 7K4.
