Solidarity Pact with OPSEU and PEGO

In April 2014, AMAPCEO signed a solidarity pact with the Ontario Public Sector Employees' Union (OPSEU) and the Professional Engineers Government of Ontario (PEGO) to protect public services in Ontario and to ensure good jobs, fair contracts, liveable wages and decent benefits for employees, retirees and our families. The pledge is a commitment to:

  • Defending the importance of keeping Ontario's services public;
  • Advancing the social, economic and general welfare of all employees in the OPS;
  • Supporting each other in protecting the provisions of our collective agreements;
  • Protecting the long-term viability of the OPS;
  • Establishing strong working relationships with all OPS labour unions and associations;
  • Acting to defend and protect the civil rights and liberties of employees and protect the rights and freedoms of trade unions in Ontario.


On behalf of the membership, the Board of Directors passes solidarity motions and takes action to support public services and public service workers around the province.

We know that solidarity makes a difference and it matters! Our combined efforts, letters and workplace actions can help to support other unions and labour associations to take on the government’s proposed austerity cuts. Solidarity movements show our commitment to protecting our rights as workers and the strength of our collective agreements.

If you know of a labour action that AMAPCEO should support, please contact the President, Dave Bulmer, via email at
