CUPE MEMBERS TAKE ACTION ON PENSIONS AND PHARMACARE
Today, more than 40 CUPE members from across the country met with Members of Parliament to support the creation of a national Pharmacare program and to discuss retirement security and pensions.
CUPE members, alongside 350 activists from the Canadian Labour Congress, participated in a lobby day in Ottawa.
The group met with over 192 parliamentarians throughout the day to support the creation of a Pharmacare program that provides coverage for all residents regardless of their income, age, or where they live. Any Pharmacare program must be patient-centred, integrated with our health system, and sustainable.
