Labour supports working parents' rights to quality affordable childcare…

An invitation to care about children

FREDERICTON, NB, LABOUR DAY, September 2, 2002
Please join Deborah Bourque, National President of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), Aydan, her six-year old grandson, Luc Guevremont, President of the Union of Postal Communication Employees (UPCE), Tony White, Regional Executive Vice-president (Atlantic) for the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and other labour activists at the opening of the new non-profit co-operative child care centre in Fredericton, NB.

Funded to the tune of over $200,000 by the CUPW and UPCE (a component of PSAC), the centre provides childcare on site and satellite care in caregivers' homes. While open to all, The Preschool Centre gives priority to CUPW and UPCE members with children aged up to 12 years.

It's everything I could've hoped for in a childcare centre but wouldn't have believed I could afford, says Kathy Steeves, a letter carrier and CUPW member. A single mother, Steeves has two children under five enrolled in The Preschool Centre.

It's really fabulous! she adds. Our work-day is so early compared to most people it's hard to find care. The Centre makes me feel really good our union put it all together and my kids were the first customers! We just walked right in the door!

To adequately meet the needs of union members working shifts, the centre offers extended hours from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm. Both unions will continue to financially support the maintenance of flexible hours as well as subsidizing members' costs.

Licensed for 60 children including those with special needs, the Centre led to the creation of twelve full-time positions.

Please join us for a BBQ, refreshments, entertainers, a children's storyteller, face painting, balloon animals, a jumpy castle, clowns and a magician, from 1 to 5pm at
125 Clark Street (North side, behind St. Anthony's Church).

Deborah Bourque, National President (CUPW), Denis Lemelin, 2nd National Vice-President (CUPW), Luc Guevremont, President (UPCE), and Tracey Law, Administrator of The Preschool Centre will be available for interviews.
