Edmonton military daycare becomes first to unionize

— A military daycare in Edmonton has become the first Canadian Forces daycare in the country to unionize.

Workers at the Edmonton Garrison Military Family Resource Society voted to join the ranks of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) union on Sept. 16.

Concerns over wage parity with other jobs in a similar field prompted the move, according to CUPE Alberta’s president, Marle Roberts.
