campaigns that makes a difference.






Awarenes campaign

Due to increased injuries and deaths on the job, the Teamsters (MWED) were looking to put together a campaign that would highlight general safety on the job as well as the National Day of Mourning. We worked with the Teamsters Rail Division to develop a campaign – Don’t Turn Your Back to the Track – reinforcing the importance of safety in the workplace and building union-wide solidarity.

Member Engagement campaign

CUPE 5167, representing the City of Hamilton Municipal Workers, was in need of a campaign to engage and inform members and the community about the important work they do to keep the city running smoothly.

Bargaining Campaigns

ETT (the Elementary Teachers of Toronto) was looking for a way to inform its members of significant changes/gains achieved in its most recent round of bargaining. Our team worked with ETT to develop an custom-designed animation that would provide members with the information they needed in an entertaining, easy-to-understand format.

Awarenes campaign

Faced with major concessions, CUPE 416 garbage workers went on strike in the summer of 2009. With Torontonians upset about the status of garbage collection and negative stories of the strike surfacing in the media, CUPE 416 was in need of a PR overhaul to reconnect with city residents. Our team set out to assist CUPE 416 in revamping its public image with a focus on educating the community about the valuable services city workers provide to residents throughout the GTA.

Awarenes campaign

In response to potential job cuts and misinformation in the media, the Toronto Education Workers (TEW) aimed to develop a public awareness campaign that would inform the public about the important jobs education workers do within TDSB (Toronto District School Board) schools. Union Marketing worked with the TEW to create a public awareness campaign that showcased the importance of various job classifications within the union through a series of TV advertisements, focusing on the unique perspectives of school children.

OCEU was up against a tough round of bargaining with the government. Facing a net zero mandate, the union was in need of an awareness campaign that would help educate its membership about the various concessions the union was facing bargaining table. Our creative team worked with OCEU to create a campaign – Hands Off My Benefits – which exposed the drastic concessions faced by both retirees and active members.

Awarenes campaign

The ETFO Toronto occasional teachers (ETFO Toronto OTs) wanted to draw awareness to the lack of respect occasional teachers regularly face on the job. Union Marketing worked with the ETFO Toronto OTs to create an awareness campaign that would emphasize the issue and encourage open discussion about growing a culture of respect in schools.

Awarenes campaign

CUPE Local 3906 was looking to develop a strike aversion campaign that would assist in informing members and the public about issues the local was facing at the bargaining table. Our team worked to develop memorable campaign branding and promotional materials to bring the local’s issues to the spotlight.

Awarenes campaign

The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) Toronto Teachers needed a campaign to inform the community about serious health and safety issues affecting school staff and students. Our team worked with OSSTF to develop campaign elements, using print and social media to promote their message.

Organizing campaign

With part-time workers facing unfair work practices in Ontario colleges, OPSEU launched an organizing campaign focused on improving college workplaces throughout the province. Using a wide range of communication initiatives, we exposed unfair practices occurring in Ontario colleges and directed workers to platforms where they could sign up to the campaign. We successfully worked together with OPSEU to launch and drive the largest organizing campaign in Canadian history.
