CEP merger vote results expected this afternoon
The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada is set to announce the results of a merger vote with the Canadian Auto Workers union that would create Canada's largest
private sector union.
The results will be disclosed at 1 p.m. in Quebec City at the CEP's national convention.
The vote follows unanimous support by CAW delegates in August.
The new union would represent more than 300,000 workers across roughly 20 economic sectors.
Most of the membership would be concentrated in manufacturing, communications and transportation.
But the new entity would also represent some public sector employees working in health, education
and transit roles.
