In February, we met for lunch with President Dave Bulmer, Anthony Schein, and OLIP alumnus Ben Rossiter from our long-time sponsors AMAPCEO – Ontario’s Professional Employees. AMAPCEO is a union of around 14,000 public service employees, most of whom work in the Ontario Public Service.
We were given an informative presentation on the history of the labour movement and evolution of public sector unions and agreements in Ontario. Our discussion also touched on their advocacy work, protection of members, and negotiation of collective agreements. We specifically examined alternative work arrangements and past and future policy prescriptions for workers.
Thank you to AMAPCEO for your continued support and interest in the programme.
