CUPE 561 Transit Worker Solidarity

Please sign up to select a day where your union/local can join a picket line to show solidarity with striking workers and help keep morale high. Below we have asked for the time you expect to come, as well as the number of people you expect to bring. These can be rough estimates but will help us and the local plan. There are four different picket line locations listed – please select the one you plan to be at by using an X, but you are also welcome to visit more than one line. These workers are on strike 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and picket times are listed below. If you have any questions, please contact Carissa, Local Community Organizer, at
