Weekend Ventures

CUPE members will have to be on their best best behaviour this weekend. Media crews will be out covering:
  • Orpheum Picket Line 6:00pm - 8:30pm (Saturday)
    • CUPE has requested a large turnout - CUPE hoping to surround theatre
    • Pickets can not block the stage entrance on Seymour but can picket entrances on Smythe and Granville
    • Challenge: can weary picketers not be drawn in to pointless arguments and taunts
  • "Word on the Street/Strike" Sunday 10:00am - 6:00pm
Visitors to Vancouver's favourite literature and literacy festival, the Word on the Street, will be delighted to discover Word on the Strike, an upbeat special event presented by striking CUPE 391 library workers at Library Square on Sunday, September 30 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. CUPE 15 has also been instrumental in organizing and supporting the event.

Capitalizing on the diverse talents and creativity of Vancouver's library and civic workers, Word on the Strike, held along side of Word on the Street, is intended as a complementary event featuring a diverse range of information tables, haiku, face painting, a puppet show, origami, buttons, and much more.

Can't speak of or for the Orpheum plan, but can assure everyone that "Word on the Strike" at Library Square will be fun.

As will "Word on the Street".

Two very worthwhile events, in my opinion.
