A multi-union campaign to boost public awareness and support for community social services (CSS) is now underway.

Together with our partners in the Community Social Services Bargaining Association of Unions (CSSBA), HEU is encouraging members across the sector to use the month of March to host local activities promoting the value of the services they provide in their communities.

Wherever possible, members are asked to team up with other union members in the sector, individuals they support, family members and employers to host a workplace activity, community display, or special event.

All local activities will be supported with provincial campaign materials that will be available in the new year.

To assist organizing efforts, we have prepared a campaign tool kit with the following information:
