In this holiday season, we wish to thank CUPE 960 members and their families for their hard work and dedication over the past year. We can all be extremely proud of the work we’ve done in our workplaces and in our communities to make Oshawa a better place to live.
In 2016, we must continue building our union as a force for positive change. Together we will push for good jobs and fairness for all Canadians. Our solidarity is our strength.
Have a happy and safe holiday season. Enjoy a well-deserved break with your friends and loved ones, and to those members who are working over the holidays - thank you so much for what you do! All the best.

Oshawa Public Library workers donated over $1,000 to help others in need this holiday season. CUPE Local 960 members fulfilled their annual tradition of donating funds, purchasing gifts, and delivering gifts to the adopted families in need this season.
The generous donations made by library workers through dress down “jeans” days and additional donations enabled Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oshawa-Whitby to assist two Oshawa families in need this holiday season. In all, Oshawa Public Library workers provided children and parents with shoes, clothing, undergarments, gift cards, toys and books, for the holidays.
“We are very happy to help out again this year,” said Jennifer Hunt, chairperson of CUPE 960 Social Committee. “Everyone helps out at the library towards donating to the adopted families in need. Our managers and front-line workers each participate in the jeans days where each person donates $2.00 throughout the year.”
“Library workers will be showering these families and children with gifts for the season to make their holidays a bit brighter,” stated CUPE 960 President, Tiffany Balducci. “Although the giving spirit is among our union culture year-round, the holidays provide CUPE 960 with the opportunity to help others during this special time of year.”
CUPE Local 960 represents over 80 employees of Oshawa Public Libraries, proudly serving our community.
