AMAPCEO Votes (2018 Provincial Election)

For the 2018 provincial election, AMAPCEO put together a voter information hub where you could register to vote and find your riding's candidates. We also put together a survey for the major political parties and a Pledge for Public Services.

Fix the Sunshine List

We are all shocked by a recent report of a stalker using the Sunshine List to locate and harass a dedicated public servant. Despite taking significant steps to protect herself and her family, her employer—the Government of Ontario—provided her stalker all the information needed to track her down and harass her again through the publication of the Sunshine List.

Enough is enough. No one should have to choose between their job and their safety. Join us in urging the government to #FixTheSunshineList by adding your name:

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.

Solidarity

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 president@amapceo.on.ca.
