COPE Ontario welcomes our new members, the workers of LEADWAVE Technologies Inc!
Based out of south-west Ontario, these workers are from the Tech sector and decided to join COPE to build a better workplace for each other. Working for a Managed Service Provider (MSP), these workers provide IT infrastructure and support to their numerous clients in cities across southern Ontario. The Tech sector remains largely non-unionized but not due to a lack of workers’ interest. In the USA, the workers at Glitch were the first in the Tech sector to join a union – they're proud members of the Communication Workers of America (CWA). Similar to the workers at Glitch, the workers at LEADWAVE are the first in the Tech Sector in Canada to unionize – they're currently no other unionized MSPs in Canada. We now work towards negotiating a first contract. Welcome to the workers of LEADWAVE and here’s to continuing to organize more workers across the Tech sector to join our union family!
