Abstract

"In the second of two CCPA-Manitoba reports on Indigenous workers and unions, Jim Silver and I study the case of Winnipeg's CUPE 500, the local that represents City of Winnipeg employees. CUPE 500 is one of the largest locals in a city and province where Indigenous people make up the highest percentage of the total population (12% and 18% respectively) compared to other Canadian jurisdictions." --Author's introduction
