Making Child Care An Issue In The Federal Election Vote Child Care 2015!

Thursday June 18 2015

What if we put child care on the national agenda and made the politicians listen?  CUPW is working with our labour partners and the Child Care Advocacy Association of Canada (CCAAC) on the Vote Child Care 2015 campaign and want to get CUPW locals and members involved.

With your participation we can: build support for our vision of child care; get federal parties to include it in their election platforms; expose the danger of the Harper government’s income-splitting initiative and the Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) and work in key ridings to make child care a vote determining issue. We can do this!

  • commit to long-term sustained federal funding and leadership
