This Wednesday, the Canadian Union of Public Employees, along with the NB Media Co-op, are launching a new book titled Bargaining Forward: The story of the 2021 CUPE Strike in New Brunswick. The book written by Professor Susan O’Donnell and journalist David G. Koch, tells the story of how front-line workers stood together and won against a hostile government.
Speakers will include Mark Hancock, CUPE’s National President, along with Candace Rennick, CUPE’s National Secretary-Treasurer. This will be followed by a presentation from both authors, then a few words from labour historian David Frank; Stephen Drost, president of CUPE NB, and Sandy Harding, regional director for CUPE.
The launch is open to all. It will take place on Wednesday, January 25, at 5:30 pm, at the Delta Beauséjour on 750 Main St, Moncton, NB. As the books are currently coming off the presses, you will be able to place orders for the book onsite.
