A Message from the Chief Steward

Hello fellow 1764 Members,

I wanted to take a moment to bring a couple of things to your attention.

Firstly, if you think you may want to grieve something, you have 5 days to do so. If you are considering grieving something, please reach out to myself or another Union representative as soon as possible so we don’t miss the deadline!

In addition, if you are injured on the job and either fill out an incident report or make a WSIB claim, please let someone from the Union know. We can help you navigate the process. It is very important to document workplace accidents and incidents and reporting them is the only way to ensure that you are protected should further issues arise from the incident.

Lastly, if you are off on a medical leave or are preparing to return to work from a medical leave, please reach out to your Union. We can help you navigate the process and connect you with services that may be able to help you.

Thank You

Kristie Osmond-Jones

Chief Steward CUPE 1764


CUPE Local 1764 became a chartered union on October 3, 1974.

We are usually referred to as the inside workers of the Regional Municipality of Durham.

From Registered Early Childhood Educators, Dental Hygienists, Clerks and Planners to Paramedics, the members that make up Local 1764 are the technical and professional backbone of the Region and provide support to its residents in many different capacities. The 159 different classifications that make up our Local are all unique in the services that they provide.

However, something bigger has been revealed by our collective failing of Tina Fontaine and Colten Boushie. We are broken as a society. Indigenous women and children have been murdered or have gone missing and there […]

Bill C-65: health and safety committees must be involved when violence happens in the workplace

While aspects of Bill C‑65 take positive steps towards the prevention of violence in the workplace, CUPE strongly believes that harassment and violence incidents should not be handled by the employer alone. “CUPE supports the federal government’s renewed focus on the prevention of violence, especially sexually related violence, but some of the specific changes contained in Bill C‑65 will not facilitate safe and accountable workplaces that […]
