CUPE Local 4914 President
On Friday, October 28 picketing began at one of our group homes. As you know, this is home to some of our most vulnerable children.
While we recognize and respect your right to strike and picket, we also know that you are sensitive to the needs of these children. A number of your bargaining unit members work directly with these children so you are aware of the potential impact of loud noises and multiple disruptions in front of their home.
We believe that many of your members who provide good service to these children would not support the disruption that was caused at the home on Friday. Please stop picketing the group home and prevent further distress to these children.
