TO: CUPE K-12 LOCALS

Sisters and Brothers:

On the eve of the BC teachers planned job actions to back up their current negotiations
with the BC government, we wanted to contact you with this message of solidarity on
behalf of all CUPE members.

CUPE BC and all K-12 members have a proud history of honoring picket lines of other
unions including the tremendous support you offered BC teachers during their famous
2005 strike. Honouring picket lines involves sacrifice, but it also displays the very best
in terms of trade union solidarity.

Please know that you will have the full support of your national union and that we will be
sharing your story with CUPE members right across Canada.

Stand tall and know that we stand with you.

In solidarity,

PAUL MOIST
National President

CHARLES FLEURY
National Secretary-Treasurer
