More than 1,500 delegates and observers of the Members of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada will vote this coming weekend on whether to merge with the CAW.
CEP, one of Canada's largest unions, will meet in Quebec City and vote on the new union. It is the second of two votes required to merge the two unions.
CAW delegates voted in favour of the new union proposal at its convention, Aug. 22 in Toronto. CEP delegates will vote on the proposal Monday, Oct. 15.
Before that, members are to also discuss in Quebec City “challenges that workers face in this weakened economy, but also the challenges that labour unions in general face,” it said in a media release.
