Direct Impact

Welcome to the Winter 2020 edition of Direct Impact
This is the first digital issue of AUPE’s Direct Impact magazine. While the format may be different from the print edition you’re used to, the kind of stories we’re telling about our union, our workplaces and our issues stays the same.
In this edition, we focus on fighting back. Our jobs are under attack. Our wages are under attack. Our pensions are under attack. Our right to bargain fair contracts is under attack. The vital services we provide are under attack.
What do we do when we’re under attack? Stand up. Fight back.
We look at these attacks and how AUPE members are leading the drive for direct action.

We give you the latest news on wage arbitration and the beginning of bargaining for new collective agreements. We know working short is a major issue for many and we give you tools to report problems so we can advocate for changes.
