Bankable sick days for CUPE
I just heard the latest radio commercial from CUPE, talking about how the government is trying to take away their bankable sick days. The plot was basically that a union member had worked his whole life and the only savings that he’d been able to manage to come up with was his saved sick days and now they want to take it away from him. I’m sorry, but when did sick days stop being for when you are sick and start being a retirement fund????
Lets just say that this commercial did nothing to win me over to the unions side, as I’m sure it didn’t with most canadians. If you’re wondering what I’m talking about here is a story from the cbc about the bankable sick days that the union is fighting to keep.
