Button Campaign

Home / Miscellaneous / Button Campaign

COPE491 is starting a campaign regarding Hours of Work.  Soon you will be receiving buttons to wear at work to stand in support of members who feel pressured to work through lunch hours and work in excess of 6 hours with no overtime as per our collective agreement. 

We work 6 hours a day.  We have 1 hour for lunch.  We should not have to take calls or direction during our lunch hour.  We should not be working more than 6 hours a day without being paid for overtime. 

These issues may not affect you or your workplace, but we want everyone to wear the buttons to show our support and solidarity with our sisters and brothers across the country who are faced with these issues. 

If you have any questions or concerns with this, please contact your RVP. 

In Solidarity,
COPE491 Executive
